Miloslav Kabelac (1908-1979) was a prominent Czech composer and conductor whose work was often compared with Antonin DvoÅ™ak's and Bohuslav Martinu's. The Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra, formed in 1945, brings new life to Kabelac's symphonies. Symphony No. 8 was written as a reflection of Kabelac's emotions during the invasion of Warsaw in 1968.
