Originally written for piano duet, Dvorak’s two sets of Slavonic Dances sold so well that he was persuaded to orchestrate them, and it is in that form that they are most popular today.
Glynn Davies’ arrangement of dance No.7 from the first set (Op.46, 1878) preserves all the buoyant character of the original, and its rustic material needs sparkle as well as vigour.
