Czech composer Antonín Dvořák has written many pieces that are mainstays of the orchestral repertoire, infused with exuberant dance rhythms and folk-music influences from his native Bohemia. The MET Orchestra and Music Director James Levine chart a course through the composer’s indelible music, including his Seventh Symphony and Carnival Overture. The intrepid ensemble also performs his Cello Concerto in B Minor, a display of dramatic solo and orchestral writing on the largest scale which deftly showcases the timbre of the cello with selected soloists from the orchestra.
