Dvořák’s greatest melodies arranged for piano

Antonín Dvořák’s gift for melody was apparent as soon as he began writing music, and this naturally tuneful inspiration has long captured the imagination of arrangers.

An expert in arranging for both orchestra and piano, Peter Breiner has selected 33 melodies in simple yet revealing piano reductions that give pianists an opportunity to journey with Dvorák through his career in Prague and ultimately overseas to America.

This carefully curated collection also brings moods ranging from rustic celebration to nostalgic melancholy, and from traditional Czech dumka dances to the famous Song to the Moon, Dvorák's most prized operatic aria.
