Herbert von Karajan conducts Dvořák's Symphony No. 8 Wiener Philharmoniker

About

“You advise me to write small pieces but I find this difficult... how can I do this when no theme for a melody or work for piano comes to me? At the moment, my mind is full of great ideas — I will follow the will of God”. These words from Dvořák to his publisher Simrock (who wanted the composer to produce shorter, easier-to-sell works) show his determination regarding the writing of his symphonies. Premiered February 2, 1890 in Prague, the Eighth Symphony, optimistic and inspired by traditional music, was very well received by its audience. The maestro Herbert von Karajan and the Wiener Philharmoniker present a masterful interpretation in this 1985 concert in the Austrian capital.
