Antonín Dvořák

Antonín Dvořák

Antonín Leopold Dvořák was born on September 8th 1841. He had musical talents, he played violin at age six; and his first public performance was at age 31. Also , when he was 31, he submitted his first symphony to a contest in Germany. He didn’t win, and the music was not returned. Later he entered a contest in Austria, and won this time.

Song

Theme from "a New World Symphony" is a hopeful song. It sounds sad, and makes you feel sad. At the end it slows down, and somehow makes you feel better. I like that it gets higher at one point, then gets lower. I choose this song because it stood out.
