Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes presents this album "Dvorák: Poetic Tone Pictures, op. 85". A rare jewel among the piano repertoire, Dvorák's 'Poetic Tone Pictures', a cycle of piano solo works, is mostly unknown to the public. Dvorák's piano compositions were largely overshadowed by his popular symphonies and chamber music works. With "Poetic Tone Pictures", the composer offers a rich palette of various different moods, from romantic and dream-like, to wild and furious. Its poetic temperament and technically rewarding piano stylization make it a gem that not only Dvorák fans will find great pleasure in.
