Antonín Dvořák

One of my pupil, Smart Boy, are learning the melody from New World Symphony by Anton Dvorak. So, I had him to search for some facts about the composer. He told me that he listened to the orchestral version of the music with his mom and found some information of Dvorak. Both, Boy and his mom were satisfied and pleased with what they have done with the music.

Antonín Dvořák

His best-known works include his New World Symphony (particularly the slow movement), as well as his Slavonic Dances, American String Quartet, and Cello Concerto in B minor.
