Dvořák: Symphony No.6 in D major

 Czech composer Antonín Dvořák (1841–1904) composed his Symphony No. 6 in D major, Op. 60, B. 112, in 1880. It is dedicated to Hans Richter, who was the conductor of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. With a performance time of approximately 40 minutes, the four-movement piece was one of the first of Dvořák’s large symphonic works to draw international attention. In it, he manages to capture some of the Czech national style within a standard Germanic classical-romantic form. Premiere: March 25, 1881. Prague: Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, Adolf Čech, conductor.WIKIPEDIA
