Antonin Dvořák was born in Czech Republic in 1841. This composer belonged to the Romantic period, and died in 1904. Antonin Dvořák

Antonin Dvořák (1841-1904) is the most important composer from the Czech Republic, who led the nationalist movement in music in that country. Dvořák's romantic music reflects the influence of folk music and Czech dance rhythms such as the furiant, whilst it remains in the classical forms developed by Beethoven and Brahms.

Dvořák's father was the village butcher, but Antonin started learning the violin when young, and was allowed to study music at the Prague Organ school. He then became principal viola in the Theatre orchestra, and started to compose and teach.

By 1874 he had written 4 symphonies, but his big break came when Brahms recognized his genius and championed his music. It became well-known in England and USA. In 1892, at age 50, he went to New York to become director of the national Conservatory of Music, where he stayed for 3 years. In USA he wrote "New World Symphony"- his best known work, and American Quartet, and his Cello Concerto. Then he returned to Prague in 1895, where he wrote many important works before he died in 1904.
