This is a re-recording of my earlier version from 2007. I think I do a much better job now. The playing is vigorous rather than refined... these unassuming Waltzes have some unexpected difficulties throughout, and are not to be sniffed at. Dvorak's piano music is sometimes deemed unpianistic and uncharacteristic, and he can certainly place some cruel and unpractical demands on the player. In particular the frequent jumping basses I find very hard.
IMO these Waltzes are among the best piano music he wrote. I hope these can be enjoyed despite the occasional imperfections.
