A. Dvorak: Poetic Tone Pictures Op.85 (Piano Solo)

Dvorak wrote to his Berlin publisher in 1889 informing them of the composition of the "Poetic Tone Pictures" and adding "You will like the compositions. Each piece has a title and is meant to describe something..." The titles of the different pieces give a good indication of the impulses which prompted Dvorak to write them: the intimate impressions and moods evoked by his enjoyment of the natural beauties of the Vysoka countryside where they were composed, and recollections of its past. All this Dvorak has embodied in 13 pieces for Piano in which the freshness of music combines with the poetic perceptiveness of the thought-content and the colourful Piano setting.
