Suk showcases the best of the Romantic Era Violin repertoire!
When the violin maestro Josef Suk, celebrating his 80th birthday this year, recorded for Supraphon a CD of Antonin Dvorak's and Josef Suk's chamber works (SU 3976-2) last year, the reviewers marvelled at the album's intimate mood, tone and interpretational directness. These attributes are also characteristic of his latest release, "Romance". On these 30-year-old recordings, Suk is backed by the two finest Czech orchestras. The album is abounding in the very qualities synonymous with Suk's illustrious name: the beautiful, mellow and cultivated tone of his Stradivarius, sparkling technique and depth of feeling. These pieces by Czech and foreign composers are as though tailored to Suk's virtuosity.
