Sir Colin Davis, London Symphony Orchestra


As one of the leading figures of nationalism in music, Dvořák's symphonies exude the essence of his Czech homeland. They are laced with folk tunes and dances from his native Bohemia that echo his earlier Slavonic Dances. The Ninth Symphony, 'From the New World', was written whilst living in America and features the instantly recognisable cor anglais melody.
