Music Millennium

This recording from José Serebrier and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra is the fourth volume in a projected series of Dvorak's complete symphonies. The Symphony No. 2 in B flat major, Op. 4, was composed by Dvorak between August and October 1865. Dvorak sent the score to be bound, and the legend goes that he was unable to pay the binder, who thus decided not to return the score. The symphony finally had it's world premiere in 1888, it's sole performance during the composer's lifetime. It is not known exactly when Dvorak's Symphony No. 3 in E-flat major, Op. 10 was created because the composer famously scratched out this vital information on the title page with a knife, but it is believed to have been written around 1872. The Symphony No. 3 premiered in 1874, conducted by Bedrich Smetana, a renowned conductor and composer in his own right. A great celebration of Slavonic spirit and artistry, it is only fitting that these two Symphonies appear on the same program A. Dvorak's Slavonic Dances.
