Serene Sunday With Dvorak’s Humoresque

Wishing everyone a peaceful and a serene Sunday. Hoping to help make this a serene Sunday on this classical music blog I turn to the great Czech Romantic Era composer, Antonin Dvorak, with his serene and melodic, “Humoresque #7”, known simply as Humoresque.
Antonin Dvorak [1841 – 1904]

From Wikipedia on Humoresque: “Humoresque (or Humoreske) is a genre of Romantic music, characterized by pieces with fanciful humor in the sense of mood rather than wit.”

“The name refers to the German term Humoreske, which was given from the 1800s (decade) onward to humorous tales. Many humoresques can be compared to a gigue in their dance-like qualities, and many were used as dance music from the 1700s onwards.”

Dvorak composed a set of 8 humoresques, with his number 7 being the most famous and beloved by concert goers. Because of that it is often just called Dvorak’s Humoresque.

Please turn up the volume to enjoy Antonin Dvorak’s, “Humoresque” , on hopefully a serene Sunday for you.
