MINI-SCORE
The Carnival Overture (1891) was the second of a group of three works by the composer collectively titled "Nature, Life, and Love." An operatic spirit informs the overture throughout folk dance-like energy. A brief central Andantino con moto episode of sedate, almost nocturnal character is distinguished by more expansive melodies and the use of the English horn, one of Dvorák's favorite instruments, in an unusual role: sounding an ostinato accompaniment rather than the melody proper. The overture ends in a spirit similar to that in which it begins, embodying the festal atmosphere suggested by its title. (edition Hafabra Music)
