To this day, the Slavonic Dances remain Dvorák's most popular work. They represent his own quintessential musical style, which competently plays with a masterly invented folklorism. Although Dvorák himself wrote an orchestral arrangement for each of the dances, the piano versions, which are incredibly demanding in terms of technique, remain the unsurpassable original. One could even say that the dances in this most purest of all versions sound endlessly more colorful than any instrumental version. For those around the world who love to play refined salon and house music, they are a real treasure!
