Widely acclaimed for their Naxos recordings of Dvorak's Symphonies Nos. 7 and 8 (8.572112) and No. 9 'From the New World' with the Symphonic Variations (8.570714), Marin Alsop and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra here present his Symphony No. 6, which pays tribute both to Dvorak's mentor Brahms and to the rich folk music of his Bohemian homeland. The Nocturne is an arrangement for string orchestra of the beautiful slow movement from his Fourth String Quartet. Suggestive of a celebration of Nature, the Scherzo capriccioso is one of Dvorak's most masterful and colourful works, with a winning principal waltz theme.
