By David Adams
Containing Original Texts; English Translations of the Czech and German texts; Phonetic Transcriptions; Czech Pronunciation and Lyric Diction; and Commentary.
Contains the texts of 110 songs by Dvorák and to the five Evening Songs of Bedrich Smetana. All Dvorák's texts are in Czech except for his Vier Lieder (Four Songs), op. 82. These four songs' texts were originally set in German, and that was the language preferred by Dvorák for these particular songs. 23 of the texts are for duets, rather than for solo voice. They include Moravské dvojzpevy (Moravian Duets), op. 20, and op. 38; and Two duets without opus number.
