The famous composer Antonín Dvořák (1841-1904), is ranked among the most outstanding personalities of the Czech nation. He is the most celebrated Czech composer and also the most frequently interpreted. Antonín Dvořák, along with Bedřich Smetana, is the founder of the modern Czech symphonic, chamber and opera music.

Antonín Dvořák was born on September 8th, 1841 in Nelahozeves, where he spent his youth. Little Antonín was drawn to music in childhood – he played the violin, piano, and organ. Thanks to an uncle, who supported him financially, Dvořák went to Prague, where he studied at organ school.

Dvořák’s work includes nearly 120 opuses, most of which are major orchestral, vocal and instrumental music, or dramatic works.

During the tenth edition of Dvořák Prague Festival, which is held during 7 to 23 September, Dvořák’s music will be interpreted by renowned Czech and foreign performers. From the rich composer’s repertory, for example, Symphonies No. 5, No. 7 and No. 9 will be played, the Violin Sonata in A minor, the Slavonic Dances, and the symphonic poem The Wild Dove.
