Great music-making... only a few ensembles maintain such balances consistently... the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center is a member of that elite... revelatory to both mind and heart. -- Los Angeles Times

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Dvorak Serenade I've heard January 4, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This performance of the Dvorak Serenade has to be the most spectacular I've ever heard. An exquisite combination of excitement and sensitivity, and of course, absolutely top-notch technical execution. What a wonderful group of musicians.

Format:Audio CD
This well-performed release from the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center fulfills one of the Society's useful niche roles, the performance of chamber music in atypical combinations of instruments. These two Antonin Dvorak works fall into that category: one an entertainment for wind ensemble and lower strings, the other his string quintet with double bass.

The better of the two pieces I think is the pleasing Serenade, a four-movement half-hour-long work which is for an ensemble just at the tipping point where a director would normally be used. The Serenade is a clear descendent of the famous Mozart serenades and divertimenti. It is pleasant, light music and if you approach it in this way, it will be enjoyable. It shouldn't be confused with Dvroak's Serenade for strings, a distinct work.

Written in Dvorak's astounding 1875 - a year when his craft fulfilled its potential and he reached maturity in an astonishing burst of activity - the Op. 77 string quintet was only published several years later. Delays like this can occur for many reasons, but I attribute this one to some qualms on the composer's part related to the quality, at least of the 1875 version (it was slightly revised when published in 1888), and the fact that it was written quickly for a competition. This CD contains an Intermezzo that was excised when the Quintet was published as a four-movement score. The Quintet has its moments - in particular I found the whisper soft Poco andante, well plated by the Chamber Music Society, and the tuneful inner third movement Scherzo to be taking - but it isn't at a level of inspiration of much of Dvorak's other terrific chamber music.

The playing by the Chamber Music Society performers is excellent throughout.
