By the time Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904) completed his 4th Symphony in 1874, he was still little known outside his native Bohemia. After applying several times for an Austrian state artist grant, he became known to Brahms, who recommended him to his publisher, Simrock. Brahms' friendship and influence on his young friend became apparent in Dvorak's music, but with the 8th Symphony that effect had been superseded by a strong nationalistic trait. The 3rd movement, "Allegretto Grazioso," is based on a song from an earlier opera, and the coda in a faster tempo recalls the "Slavonic Dances." These infectiously joyous melodies will be loved by students and audiences alike. This title is available in SmartMusic.
