The ANAM Orchestra – comprising ANAM’s young musicians and members of faculty – takes ‘self-drive’ to lofty heights in these two symphonic masterworks, which will be performed without a conductor.
The Eighth Symphony by Dvořák is one of his sunniest and most purely beautiful. It is packed with good cheer and lilting melodies.
‘To have a beautiful idea is nothing special. The idea comes from itself and if it is beautiful and great, man can take no credit for that. But to develop the idea well and make something great from it, that is the most difficult, that is – art!’ – Anton Dvořák
When Robert Schumann discovered the score of Schubert’s ‘Great’ Symphony in 1838 – ten years after Schubert’s death – he also found a profoundly beautiful symphonic epic, a work which had a far-reaching effect on the future of the symphony. A performance of this supremely human masterpiece automatically becomes an event.
