Czech Mate

Yesterday's post was about the father of  Czech music, Bedrich Smetana.  While Smetana was known as the father, there was another of his fellow countrymen who was more famous and whose music is probably more recognized.   The great Czech composer Antonin Dvorak [last name pronounced Di-Vor-Zhak].  Dvorak is one of my favorite composers.
