Rachel Gregg joins Acacia to narrate the poetry written for Dvorak’s love sick ‘Cypresses’ Love Songs. He wrote them for a student with whom he was completely smitten but unfortunately she did not return his love. Borodin, however, was much luckier in love and dedicated his String Quartet No 2 to his dear wife as an anniversary present.
