||"Czech Rhapsody" was written in 2004 by Carl Seale. It was commissioned by Jack Harlan Felts in honor of the West High School Band, Steven Hart, Director, City of West, Texas.
Czech Rhapsody (On Themes of Dvorak) – One could question whether this is a composition or an arrangement. The use of the original material of Antonin Dvorak would indicate it to be an arrangement. On the other hand the compositional treatment of these themes would give the other view. This was commissioned for a small band in a small school district in a predominantly Czech community and is playable by a band without or with double reeds. Themes are taken form Dvorak’s Biblical Songs, Op. 99 and Symphonies no. eight and nine. 6:20
