Dvořák Slavonic Dances

Hindemith Mathis der Maler: Symphony

Dvořák Symphony No. 8 in G Major

The fifth and final masterworks concert features music from Dvorak, and Hindemith. All three pieces are heavily influenced by German and Austrian folk music, and the effects can be heard throughout. The Mathis der Maler: Symphony is among the most famous pieces from composer Paul Hindemith. The piece came under harsh criticism from the Nazi party due to its plot, which focused on artistic duty over political ties. Slavonic Dances Op.46 composed by Antonín Dvořák is a lively piece that is full of national character. Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8 in G major is a cheery and lyrical piece that draws inspiration from Bohemian folk music. The finale of our masterworks is sure to take you on a trip that you won’t want to come back from.
