The Serenade for Strings by Dvořák, the great Czech nationalist composer, is laden with rich sonorities and hauntingly beautiful melodies suffused with the spirit of Czech folk music. Performed by Nurit Bar-Josef, concertmaster of the National Symphony Orchestra, Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5, often referred to by the nickname the Turkish, is full of energetic and lively melodies. Symphony No. 29, one of Mozart’s early symphonies, is a very personal work that combines intimate chamber music style with a fiery and impulsive manner.
