Edward Cumming conducts music that defined his signature style. Slavonic Dances catapulted Dvorák to fame – while Symphony No. 6 showcased his experimental technique. Brahms combined violin and cello for the solo portions of his final orchestral work to create a “super” instrument of sonority and range.
