Brahms, Dvořák

Bohemian joie de vivre: With his Slavonic Dances, Antonín Dvořák painted a musical portrait of his homeland. His Violin Concerto raised the stakes yet again with a work of virtuosity, here performed by the violinist Alina Pogostkina. The Youth Symphony Orchestra of Lower Austria tell of Dvořák’s love for his country from afar with his symphony «From the New World» in the Prelude. And Johannes Brahms also looked eastward in his «Hungarian Dances». Based on folk melodies, they resonate with the natural beauty of the castle grounds.
