The year of 1941 is the centenary of Anton Dvorak's birth and this biography of the Czech composer, the first to be published in this country, commemorates his anniversary, September 8th. The author devotes the first chapter to a review of the musical traditions of Bohemia, the country of Dvorak's birth. Here music flourished since early times at the courts of the Bohemian kings and in the houses of the nobles, each of whom maintained his own orchestra and required his retainers to play some instrument in it. The attention of the author is thereafter concentrated upon the person od Dvorak, whose life is chronicled from his humble birth to the heights of his triumphs in America, where he was inspired to write the famous New World Symphony. Scholarly study is devoted to every one of his works and to the sources of his inspiration which lay in the genius of the German Romantics and in the folk-poetry of his people whose national hopes his music did so much awaken

Like every other great 19th-century solo concerto, Dvorák's famous Cello Concerto was a collaboration between composer and virtuoso. It has long been known that certain solo passages in Dvorák's autograph score were actually written by the cellist Hanuš Wihan; but Bärenreiter's edition now reveals that some details in the orchestral parts are also in his writing, showing just how closely the two musicians were working together. The editor Jonathan Del Mar has painstakingly examined all the surviving sources, including two that have hitherto been either ignored or crucially undervalued, in order to produce an authoritative edition which restores - for the first time since the original edition was published in 1896 -- Dvorák's final and definitive version of the solo cello part. This differs, in details, in almost every bar from the version found in all other modern editions, while hundreds of corrections have also been made to the orchestral parts. With Dvorák's final and definitive version of the solo cello part; With hundreds of corrections in the solo cello part as well as the orchestral parts; With hitherto unknown details regarding the collaboration between Dvorák and Wihan; With Dvorák's original piano reduction; With Feuermann's and Casals' alternatives to a passage in the first movement. - Publisher
