Composer of the Month
 
 
 
 
Available live at 22:05 GMT Saturday

World Service will carry continuous news coverage until further notice. Updated schedule and programme information will be issued as it becomes available.


Latest edition: Saturday 15th March

Antonin Dvorak

Dvorak's career really takes off in the next edition of Composer of the Month.

His first smash-hit, his Slavonic Dances, is published by one of the most famous publishing houses in Europe - and suddenly Dvorak's music is in demand all over the continent, and as far away as America, too.

The Czech composer had found his own unique voice, one where his mastery of the techniques of music could be combined with the colours and rhythms of his native folk music – and audiences and critics loved it.
