THE STORY OF DVOŘÁK (1841-1904)
DID YOU KNOW. . .
Dvořák was an important representative of musical nationalism, though his works have universal appeal.
Success did not spoil Dvořák. He remained a basically simple man all his life and usually added 'Thank God' at the end of his scores.
Dvořák was passionately fond of railroad trains and spent much time studying locomotives. He also took a great interest in ocean-going ships.
Dvořák spent two years as directory of the National Conservatory in New York City.
Narrated by Robert Symonds
