Flavorful pieces rooted in folk music, including excerpts from the Czech Suite and Prague Waltzes and a pair of lively mazurkas are featured. Other highlights include "Songs My Mother Taught Me," "The Noon Witch," and pieces from cello and violin concertos and symphonic movements. All thirty-six selections are available as downloadable MP3s.and more. Each selection features a brief Introduction that provides historical context and, in some cases, suggestions for performance.
