Usually ships within 1-3 days
Dvo?ák's was a strong voice in the re-establishment of Czech musical identity, and the noble themes, open landscapes and dancing Scherzo of the Symphony No. 6 bear the stamp of a genius at his height. The work can also be heard as a tribute to Brahms, who had helped him earlier in his career. Janá?ek's charming Idyll reflects his preoccupation with Moravian folk-songs and rhythms as well as the influence of his friend Dvo?ák, identified by Jaroslav Vogel as the work's "spiritual godfather".
