An Interpretation of Dvorak’s Humoresque From Music Perspective

Guozhong ZHANG


<p class="AboutAbstract">Antonin Dvorak, the famous folk music composer of the Czech Republic, has created numerous music works in his life. His works inherit the excellent folk culture of the nation and absorb classical and romantic nutrition, integrate the other cultures and his own into one, and innovate to present a new emotional implication and personality tag. His <em>Humoresque</em> was originally the 7<sup>th</sup> piece in the piano collection <em>8 Humoresques</em> created in 1984. The relaxed, humorous, happy collection fully reflects the composer’s aspiration for quiet rural lifestyle and delighted mood for the lifestyle. Whether in the structural layout, harmony technique or selection of music material, the work is characterized by the strong personality of the composer.</p>
