Dvořák: #101

About this playlist

From Bohemia to Iowa and quite a few places in between, Dvorak's distinctive orchestral music recalls forests, fairy tales and wide-open prairies. Time spent in Prague, London and New York is reflected in his work, and folklore and biblical tales informed his vocal pieces. Dvorak was an influential teacher, and his time as director of the American National Conservatory of Music inspired a new generation of composers as well as his famous 9th Symphony, subtitled 'From the New World'.
