About this event

Dvorak’s Eighth Symphony is, simply, a joy.

The music has a natural, unforced quality that belies its complexity, and layers of truly original textures and ear-worm-worthy melodies shine with sparkling clarity.

Learn more about this marvellous work, with presenter Nicholas Bochner giving context and meaning to the music, as the MSO provides illuminating musical examples and excerpts.
