Distinguished Czech pianist Radoslav Kvapil recorded the complete piano works of Dvořák over 30 years ago. International critics continue to praise him as one of the finest exponents of Czech piano music. Witness Kvapil’s mastery of Dvořák’s piano music in an all-Dvořák program, including Silhouettes op.8, Dumka and Furiant op.12, Humoresques, and Poetic Tone Pictures op.85 at the Kennedy Center Terrace Theater.
Kvapil founded the South Bohemian Music Festival and the Vysočina Music Festival, chairs the International Dvořák Society, and organizes the American Spring Festival in the Czech Republic. Fanfare Magazine calls Kvapil “a magician with Czech music...I know of no other pianist, who has so consistently communicated its warmth and character.”
