Jan Vaclav Vorisek (1791 - 1825) was born in North East Bohemia and educated in Prague. From 1813 he became one of the most important Czech emigres in Vienna where he continued his musical studies and gained a reputation as an excellent pianist.

His compositions follow the Bach-Mozartian tradition leading to the pioneering musical expression of Schubert and Chopin. He was able to follow the great examples of world music whilst preserving the individuality and maturity of the typically Czech melodic expression.

His Symphony in D major has four parts that differ greatly in their movement and expression. As a whole it bears the mark of an independent artistic personality welling from the Czech national tradition.
