Pohadka Leta (A Sumer Tale) was composed at a particularly dark time in the composer's life, just after the death of both his wife and father in law - the composer Antonin Dvorak. A remarkable work, with many shfting moods and brilliant orchestration, ending with a wistful nocturne. Available for the first time as a digitally-enhanced reprint of the score originally issued in 1910 by Universal Edition, Vienna.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pohadka Leta (A Summer Tale), Op. 29 - Study Score?

A great find!  Jan 25, 2008
I have scoured the internet for scores of Suks orchestral works, and they aren't easy to come by. So it was a big and pleasant surprise to find this affordable study score of probably his most lush composition right here on this site. Summer Tale is not very well known and rarely heard, yet no doubt one of the great masterpieces of the late romantic era. It yields in nothing to its more famous predecessor Asrael, and to many listeners will be more immediately accessible: the textures are less spare, and the sound-colors Suk conjures up are of a rarefied beauty and subtlety. The closing bars, Andante sostenuto, are among the most mysterious and haunting things you will ever hear from an orchestra. Owning a score is therefore worthwhile, and this is an excellent opportunity. It is not one of those pocket-sized books, but a fairly large format edition, reprinted directly from a 1910 Universal Edition publication. Overall, readability is pretty good, though the lines of the staves are just a tad too thick which just occasionally makes it difficult to distinguish open from closed noteheads. A table of contents, that shows on which page each movement starts, is omitted, which is a pity. But these are minor quibbles and anyone seriously interested in this fascinating music needs not hesitate.
