Symphonies get a lot of love from classical listeners. Other instrumental follows. Solo piano. String quartets and the like.
And Dvorak excelled in all of those.
He thought of himself as an opera composer, however. I've owned all of them at one time or another.
I can only think of Rusalka, which I saw in Prague a couple of years ago, and Dmitrij, which I would like to see, in Prague, before too many years have passed.
Any love for any of his other operas here?
