The music of Czechoslovakia always conjures up expectations of irresistible rhythm, passion, heartbreak and rapturous melody. All of these you will hear in full measure as we journey together. But we will also encounter great craft and compositional mastery. As Dvorak himself put it ‘To have a fine idea is nothing special. The idea comes of itself and if it is a beautiful and great one, this is not due to the man who has it. But to realize this idea in a beautiful fashion and to make something great out of it, that is the most difficult thing, that is art.”
