Dvořák Symphony No. 8
February 6–8, 2020
Violinist Gidon Kremer finds “a source of an unlimited inspiration” in Mieczysław Weinberg, a Polish-born, Soviet composer who followed in the shadow of his mentor and friend, Dmitri Shostakovich. The progress of an outsider working a century earlier is echoed in Antonín Dvořák, who indulged in glorious sounds of nature and Czech country life in his Eighth Symphony.
