Dvořák Slavonic Dances

Hindemith Mathis der Maler: Symphony

Dvořák Symphony No. 8 in G Major


LSO’s final Masterworks concert of the season features music from Antonín Dvořák and Paul Hindemith. German and Austrian folk music influenced all three pieces. Hindemith’s “Mathis der Maler: Symphony” came under harsh criticism from the Nazi party due to its plot, which focused on artistic duty over political ties. Dvořák’s “Slavonic Dances Op. 46” is lively, full of national character and considered to be Dvořák’s most memorable orchestration. Dvořák’s “Symphony No. 8 in G major” is a cheery and lyrical piece that draws inspiration from Bohemian folk music. Join the LSO for a night that examines the themes of patriotism, heritage and artistic freedom.
