ConductorKarel Mark Chichon
The symphony was jointly published alongside Dvořák’s Fourth Symphony in 1911 by Simrock (Berlin and Leipzig) following the composer's death in 1904. As was the case with his First Symphony, Dvorak's Fourth is written in a minor key; the romantic orchestration uses harp and an expanded percussion section, instead of the English horn and tuba that were used in the Third. With the Fourth, Dvořák establishes the prototype of nationalism in symphonic music, moving from its passionate opening restlessness to the vision of a glorious future for the Czech nation in the finale.
As with the previous volumes in this Dvořák symphony cycle, Karel Mark Chichon and the German Radio Philharmonic Orchestra produce performances that combine an underlying passion with detailed insights.
