The piano music of the Bohemian lands from the Romantic era to post World War I has been largely neglected by pianists and is not frequently heard in public performances. However, given an opportunity, one gains insight into the unique sound of the Czech piano repertoire and it's contributions to the Western tradition of piano music. Nationalist Czech composers were inspired by the Bohemian landscape, folklore and historical events, and brought their sentiments to life in their symphonies, operas and chamber works, but little is known about the history of Czech piano literature. The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the unique sentimentality, sensuality and expression in the piano literature of Czech composers whose style can be traced from the solo piano cycles of Bedrich Smetana (1824-1884), Antonín Dvorák (1841-1904), Leos Janácek (1854-1928), Josef Suk (1874-1935), Bohuslav Martinu (1890-1935) to Erwin Schulhoff (1894-1942). Florence brings these spirited works fully to life.
