Antonín Dvorák’s huge popularity in England was built largely on the success of his Stabat Mater, which he had conducted there in 1884 and 1885. It was well suited to the country’s choral traditions and led eventually to a commission for a Requiem, which was premièred in Birmingham in 1891. Written in ten months during tours to Russia, England and Germany, its success was immediate. Sitting closer to the tradition of Cherubini than Verdi, its tone is compassionate and reflective, devoid of unnecessary drama, and movingly crafted with great sophistication. Conductor Antoni Wit is a Naxos regular and a renowned interpreter of Slavic music, conducting Dvorák’s Piano Concerto on 8.550896 and the Czech Suite coupled with Hero’s Song on 8.553005. “There is no doubt Dvorák’s Requiem belongs to his most significant and challenging works.” - Antoni Wit
