  • This documentary is a treat for both the eye and ear, shedding new light on the life and work of the great Czech composer. During his lifetime, Antonin Dvorak rose from a humble beginning as the son of the village butcher, progressing to enter the canon of classical music, as well as becoming a statesman of culture in his country, and a Senator in Austria. A patriot who espoused the incorporation of traditional folk music into his compositions, Dvorak is shown to be a man of strong character and sensitive intellect. The biography is augmented by selections of the composer's oeuvre, performed by the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra and the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, featuring performances by Vaclav Neumann and Jiri Kout. They perform works such as the "Symphony No. 9 in E Minor," "Concerto for Cello and Orchestra in B Minor," and "Biblical Songs," as well as his violoncello and piano concertos, all of which number among the artist's best-known works.
