Excerpt:

In the midst of this creative outpouring, Dvořák composed a Serenade for string orchestra between May 3 and 14 of 1875. The Serenade is a charming and joyful work infused with the profound happiness and optimism pervading his life at the time. Each of the movements has a unique character, including a lilting waltz, a playful scherzo, a passionate and lyrical larghetto, and concluding with something rather unexpected after the courtly elegance we’ve experienced so far: a lively folk dance in the style of those heard throughout villages in Dvořák’s native Bohemia.
