Antonín Dvořák in America: A Closer Look, at Bohemian National Hall (Site)

Friday April 19, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$23.18 – $33.85

Pianist and musicologist Katelyn Bouska offers new insights into Antonín Dvořák in America through a special musical tour focused on his compositions, students and contemporaries in the late 19th century.

The three years Antonín Dvořák spent in the United States are often celebrated for his large-scale works: the beloved “From the New World” Symphony or the intensely brilliant Cello Concerto. Lingering between in his solo works, however, are intimate glimpses of the composer. Through these and the music of his contemporaries, this program invites the listener into Dvořák’s inner world while tracing his legacy in American music.
