Dvořák, more than any other composer before him, successfully brought the music of his homeland into the concert hall, blending folk tradition with art music. His works have endless, universal appeal, from his rollicking Slavonic Dances to the large-scale, fully realized Sextet in A major. Selected short piano works by fellow countryman Smetana provide context and a glimpse at Dvořák's musical roots.
