Format: Audio CD
Viteslav Novák (1870-1949) was taught by Dvorák and was in the same conservatory class as Josef Suk, who became Dvorák's son-in-law and grandfather of the current violinist with the same name. Somehow Novák always falls in the shadow of Suk and his works are rarely heard outside his native country. Yet, he is a superlative composer who, although his early work, including the first piece heard here, sounds a good deal like Dvorák, developed his own voice, incorporated impressionistic technique into his works, and whose later works were all influenced by Moravian and Slovakian folk melodies and dances. I first heard music by him when a friend insisted I listen to his ballet score, 'Signorina Gioventu,' which has become a real favorite.
The Serenade in F, Op. 9, in four movements, is more or less a student work, written in the mid-1890s, and is in fairly typical late-romantic garb. Supported by sumptuous harmonies and particularly by expressive use of the violas and celli, there are long-limbed and yearning melodies and Czech dance rhythms. Except for a brief passage in the third movement that sounds like it was lifted from Liszt's 'Les Préludes,' it definitely sounds like it might have been written by Dvorák or Brahms. There are a few places that foreshadow his later rather more French-sounding harmonies, but they pass quickly.
The Serenade in D, Op. 36, also in four movements, is a more assured work, sparer in texture but still with plenty of velvety harmonies. There are occasional whole-tone passages as well as more imaginative use of the winds, making the transition to a more French sound.

Novak is another of my all time favorites. I have all of his recorded orchestral music, which is my passion. I thought, this one won't hold up to my favorites, In the Tatras and the Eternal Longing. Wrong. They do hold up, they are as beautiful as all of his other compositions. Creative, inventive, runs the full gamut of emotions from tiny delicate passages, to the full beautiful storm. Don't miss this composer!
