Program Notes & Works
Piano Concerto No. 1 in B-flat minor, Opus 23
The premiere took place far from home, in Boston’s Music Hall, now the Orpheum Theatre on Washington Street.
Symphony No. 7 in D minor, Opus 70
Since it was only the second of his symphonies to appear in print, it was published as “No. 2.” But the manuscript described the work as Dvořák’s “6th Symphony”—and it was actually his seventh!
