Dvorak's Largo For Cello and Piano

During my morning walk on Saturday, I heard this beautiful version of the "going home" theme from the Largo movement of the Czech Romantic composer, Antonin Dvorak's wonderful "From the New World" Symphony #9 played on "All Classical Portland".  The version I heard was for cello and piano.  This is one of my favorite movements of any symphony played by full orchestra, and it translates well to the cello. 

I thought to myself what a soothing, peaceful, and beautiful melody for the Tales Sunday version of the blog's all classical weekends.

Antonin Dvorak [1841 - 1904]
Please turn up the volume and relax and enjoy this beautiful music from one of my favorite composers, transcribed for cello and piano. On this version I found on You Tube, it was arranged by the cellist, Steven Sharp Nelson and pianist, Jon Schmidt.

Big Mike,

I used to play this on the piano as a kid. Couldn't play it as slow as here, though. Beautifully soothing.
