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