Works & Achievements: Antonín Leopold Dvořák was one of the greatest Czech composers of all time, who is known for his symphonies, choral music, chamber music, operas and concerts.
Antonín Dvořák, the greatest Czech and Romantic composer of all time, is known for creating some of the most beautiful symphonies in the history of music. A style which is often known as romantic-classicist synthesis, his wide range of works includes symphonies, choral music, chamber music, operas and concerts. Flying high from the most modest beginnings of Czech lands of central Europe, he travelled all across the world with his beautiful music, even while feeling proud to be born as a Czech. The creativity and progressiveness, which earned him distinction even during his life span, took his success stories even to countries like Australia and America, where he left a huge footprint. This exponent of Czech musical nationalism based his style on the rhythmic patterns of folk music of his nation. One who is best remembered for those memorable melodies which possess instrumental sense, no wonder he is considered as one of the best among the European composers.
