The works of Dvorák and Brahms are united by their emotional intimacy and grand love of country. Brahms’ second symphony evokes these themes with joyful pastoral imagery, while Dvorák’s cello concerto uses them to frame the great tragedies of his life: a thwarted love affair and the fight for his homeland’s independence. Famously called “a citizen without a country,” Dvorák stands in poignant counterpoint to Brahms in this stirring program.
