The Dvorak Symphony No. 1 for Father’s Day—(last Sunday).

It was a magnificent Symphony, in the grand romantic manner of Beethoven and Schubert. In some ways, I think perhaps it is the best of all I have heard so far (1, 2 & 5). As in most of his music, there is a strong feeling of nostalgia or yearning, running thru the whole symphony—As I listen vague longing and regret for scenes and events past, come over me.
