Emerging from the fertile background of Bohemian nationalism,
Vítezslav Novák’s music achieved cult status in his homeland for its
richness of melody and full-blown romantic orchestral colour. The
lush timbres and monumental solemnity of In the Tatra Mountains
were inspired by the composer’s journeys in this magnificent region.
Eternal Longing is based on a poem by Hans Christian Andersen,
while the dramatic Lady Godiva Overture, complete with tolling bells
at the finale, was written by Novák in two days and is considered one
of his most powerful works.
