Dvorák, with a spring in his step

Tonight's concert at the Maribor Music Festival was a delight. Gifted young pianist Polina  Leschenko and viola player Nathan Baude played work by by Rebecca Clarke and Frederic Chopin.

They were then joined by violinists Richard Tognetti and Satu Vänskä and cellist Jaka Stadler to play Antonin Dvorák's Piano Quintet #2 in A major which has a very strong melody line.  I can hear people whistling it in the hotel hallway as I write.
