Dvorak (Life & Times)

This is the first biography of the famous Czech composer Antonin Dvorak, published in English in more than a decade, released on the centenary of his death. Kurt Honolka weaves the story of Dvorak's life into the rich tapestry of the political and social tensions of the Austro-Hungarian Empire at the decline of its power. Honolka sets the scene for Dvorak's "American" music and his return from the United States and provides a fascinating context to his most famous work, the Ninth Symphony From the New World.
