By the end of his life, Dvorak (1841-1904) was one of the world's most celebrated composers, famous for his Slavonic Dances and the 'New World' Symphony. But, as Neil Wenborn explains, he was a profoundly 'national' musician, proud of both his Czech nationality and the rural folk traditions which he combined with the sophistication and dynamism of the fin de siecle.
Part of Naxos' Life and Music series, this illustrated biography includes an accompanying audio CD with a representative selection of full movements from Dvorak's works.
