Passport to Prague is a performance of works by Rossini, Mozart and Dvořák, including the joyous and energetic Symphony No. 8 in G Major, Op. 88. Dvořák achieved a new style with this work, composed at a time when Czech art and culture were experiencing a resurgence after centuries of imposed Germanization. The composition is pastoral and idyllic, joyous and spirited. Journey with us into the lush and rustic Czech countryside, with musical sounds that reflect nature, such as hunting horn calls and birdsongs played by various wind instruments.
