The famous Czech composer Antonin Dvorak is best known for his 9th Symphony, “The New World Symphony,” which he composed during the winter and spring of 1893 in New York City when he was the Director of the National Conservatory of Music (1892-1895). It has been so amazingly popular since its first performance that it has often overshadowed his earlier symphonic works, which some critics consider better than the 9th. As for me, I love all of his music and he was prolific. Dvorak is not far behind Mozart in my love!
Below is an album of his “Symphonic Variations, No. 78” and his wonderfully bright and happy “Symphony No. 8, in G Major.”
