|Antonin Dvorak, My Father|
Antonin Dvorak, My Father is a personal biography by his son Otakar who at the age of seventy-five years old decided to "write about the events missing from the other books about my father. "
For musicologists, Otakar's biography of his father contains many new items, but basically the book portrays Dvorak as a father. Story after story discloses Dvofak's real identity, captured in simple words by his son, while the great composer's work and profession linger in the background.

This book's twenty-four essays offer the latest insights into this Czech composer by experts worldwide, including many Czechs who have never before published in English. They present new viewpoints reflecting the changed political climate in Eastern Europe; and emphasize Dvorak's significance not only as a Czech nationalist, but as a composer whose message is universally understood.
