With support from the State Fund of Culture and the National Museum, Supraphon is releasing an extraordinary album of Antonín Dvořák’s Moravian Duets. The entire cycle of folk poetry settings has been recorded on the composer’s very own 1879 Bösendorfer piano, a precious item maintained at the Antonín Dvořák Museum in Prague. The album features internationally renowned young artists, all of them possessing a great sense for the grace of Dvořák’ songs, as well as the singular tone qualities of the instrument, once touched by the maestro himself. The soprano Simona Šaturová, the mezzo-soprano Markéta Cukrová and the tenor Petr Nekoranec were accompanied on Dvořák’s piano by Vojtěch Spurný. A Czech Television programme, produced by Jiří Hubač from BVA International, originated during the recording process. Supraphon is scheduled to release the new album of Moravian Duets on 20 April 2018, on CD and in digital formats.
