Antonin Dvořák's Piano Quintet, Op. 81 2nd Mvt. (Part 1)

This is the second movement -- Dumka: Andante con moto. Unfortunately it is longer than 10 minutes so I had to split it.
This magnificent performance of Antonin Dvořák's Piano Quintet, Op. 81 was only one piece of a superb programme played by several of the master musicians who spend two weeks each year teaching at the annual International Academy of Music Festival in Tuscany. What makes this performance so remarkable is that these musicians had very limited time to rehearse together -- and only after a full day giving master classes to the students!
Note especially the incredible tone from Ms. Tschopp's viola and the whimsical, dreamy quality of Slutsky's piano. Masterful. (The other artists also excel but for me, this movement belongs to Tschopp and Slutsky!)
