Carnival Overture, Op. 92 (For Military Band - Herbert Lincoln Clarke)
Antonín Leopold Dvořák was a Czech composer who was born on September 8, 1841 in Nelahozeves, Bohemia. In 1875 Dvořák was awarded a state grant by the Austrian government, and this award brought him into contact with Johannes Brahms, with whom he formed a close and fruitful friendship. In his career, Dvořák made 9 invited visits to England, often conducting performances of his own works. In 1892, Dvořák moved to the United States and became the director of the National Conservatory of Music of America in New York City. While in the United States, Dvořák wrote his two most successful orchestral works: the Symphony From the New World, and Cello Concerto, one of the most highly regarded of all cello concerti. He also wrote his most appreciated piece of chamber music, the American String Quartet, during this time. But shortfalls in payment of his salary, along with increasing recognition in Europe and an onset of homesickness, led him to leave the United States and return to Bohemia in 1895. He died May 1, 1904, Prague
