About

When the violin maestro Josef Suk, celebrating his 80th birthday in 2009, recorded for Supraphon a CD of Antonín Dvořák’s and Josef Suk’s chamber works (SU39762) in 2008, the reviewers marvelled at the album’s intimate mood, tone and interpretational directness.

These attributes are also characteristic of his latest release, “Romance”. On these 30-year-old recordings, Suk is backed by the two finest Czech orchestras. The album is abounding in the very qualities synonymous with Suk’s illustrious name: the beautiful, mellow and cultivated tone of his Stradivarius, sparkling technique and depth of feeling.

These pieces by Czech and foreign composers are as though tailored to Suk’s virtuosity.
