      Apart from many beautiful flute solos in his symphonic works Antonín Dvořák never composed music for the flute. To fill such a regrettable gap flutists often play his Sonatina for violin and piano, opus 100. This Rondo in G minor, opus 94 which was originally written for cello and piano in 1871 is here presented in a flute version as yet another attempt to add a splendid piece of Dvořák to the flute literature.

  • About the composer +
    • Antonín Leopold Dvořák (8 September 1841 – 1 May 1904) was a Czech composer. After Bedřich Smetana, he was the next Czech Romantic-era composer to achieve worldwide recognition. Following Smetana's nationalist example, Dvořák frequently employed aspects, specifically rhythms, of the folk music of Moravia and his native Bohemia. Dvořák's own style has been described as "the fullest recreation of a national idiom with that of the symphonic tradition, absorbing folk influences and finding effective ways of using them".
