Tune of the Day: Dumka by Dvořák

from “Slavonic Dances”, transcribed for solo flute

This is the second piece from the second set of Slavonic Dances by Czech composer Antonín Dvořák. This second set, Op. 72, was originally written in 1886 for piano four-hands, and later orchestrated at the request of Dvořák's publisher.

The Slavonic Dances were inspired by Johannes Brahms's own Hungarian Dances. Lively and full of national character, they were well received at the time, and today they are among the Dvořák's most memorable works.
