Description
Originally published in Germany in 1974, Kurt Honolka's biography of Antonín Dvorák (1841–1904) weaves the story of his life and his founding of a Czech national musical form into the tapestry of political and social tensions in the waning Austro-Hungarian Empire. Honolka sets the scene for Dvorák's "American" music with his 1892–95 stay in the United States, providing a context for his most famous work, the Symphony No. 9 in E minor, From the New World. Illustrated throughout with color and black and white photos, documents, and reproductions of art, this book from the Life and Times series looks at a figure of the 19th century whose influence extended well into the 20th, with a detailed discussion of his works.
