Antonín Dvorák
and his Awe-Inspiring Compositions

Dvorák was born in Nelahozeves, Bohemia in 1841 and he died in Prague in 1904. At fourteen he left home and was taught diverse musical skills by A. Liehmann. Shortly after, he attended Organ School in Prague.

After schooling, he became a viola player under the baton of Smetana. His first major composition that achieved public success was a cantata, Hymnus. The success of this work enabled Dvorák to give up his viola job in favor of composing. The result was an Austrian national prize for his Symphony in Eb.

Dvorák was not only successful in his own country but in America as well. He stayed there for three years and wrote some of his best pieces including his New World Symphony.

An Amazing Dvorák Fact

Remember the Austrian national prize that Dvorák won? Well, one of the jury members was none other than Brahms. Undoubtedly, Brahms recognized the emotional and intellectual power of this upcoming young star.
