A musician and composer completely unknown until the age of 33, suddenly becomes the center of attention of the entire world. He is invited to the United States to help
create American national music, receives doctoral degrees from some of the world’s most prestigious universities, and is offered honorary memberships in world-famous
orchestras. Where did Dvořák find his inspiration and invention? What were the causes of his sudden rise? What was the fate of his family? These are some of the questions
addressed by the new BVA International documentary on the famous Czech composer. Dvořák is presented as a sensitive, educated man of strong character and a true Christian.
A patriot who was lifted by his talent from a humble background to the highest peaks of glory.
