CD of the Week: The Boston Symphony Chamber Players: Brahms and Dvorák Serenades

In arrangements of serenades by Brahms and Dvorák, the musicians of the BSO capture the jovial allure of their summer home at Tanglewood.

In a chamber ensemble arrangement of Brahms’s Serenade No. 1 and a new reconstruction of Dvorák’s Octet-Serenade, the Boston Symphony Chamber Players offer the perfect program for early summer. Both pieces imbue an earthy vitality, evoking the pastoral enchantment of the BSO’s summer home at Tanglewood.
