From The Archives - Antonín Dvořák

Composer Antonín Dvořák
Composer Antonín Dvořák

The great Czech composer Antonín Dvořák redefined music of his native land and shared its indigenous rhythms and colors with the world. We’ll hear two contrasting works – his buoyant Serenade for Winds Op. 44 in a spectacular live recording, and his melodramatic tone poem “The Golden Spinning Wheel” based on a folk tale that must be heard to be believed.
