Anton Dvorak (1841-1904) was a Czech composer, probably most famous for his 'New World' Symphony. His 'Serenade for Strings', string quartets, cello concerto and songs also enjoy some popularity.
Of his songs, 'Songs my mother taught me' ('Heyduk') from op. 55 no. 4 is the most well-known. This arrangement requires a great deal of warmth from the soloist and would make an excellent piece to focus on tone or possibly a great piece for a slow melody competition. The piano plays in a different time signature to the soloist; the rhythm of the piano part should not be allowed to interfere with the flow of the melody.
If you choose this option you will be emailed a PDF file containing the music you have purchased. Please note that sending of the files is not automated but done by a human, so you will not receive the music instantaneously. Most computers will easily allow you to print off this music so you can play it, but if you experience any problems feel free to contact us. Choosing this method is cheaper because you don't have to pay for postage. It is becoming increasingly common for people to buy books and music in this format.
This is the more traditional method, where you actually receive the music in the post. The music is neatly presented. Spiral binding is used on thicker books to help ensure the music stays flat on the music stand (ever experienced the frustration of a thick music book continually closing or falling off the music stand while trying to play?). The prices quoted include postage - just choose the correct option depending on whether you live within Australia or outside Australia.
