Antonín Dvořák has long been known as one of music's supreme melodists, but his songs have not made quite the headway of his best-known works. Now 30 of them are given a new lease of life in transcriptions for violin and viola and piano by his great-grandson, Josef Suk — the viola pieces performed here on Dvořák's own instrument, restored especially for this recording. With Josef Suk joined here by Vladimir Ashkenazy, this disc offers two of the world's greatest musicians playing — together for the first time — some of its most beautiful music, in versions never heard before.
