The exhibition marks  the 170th anniversary of the birth of the most celebrated Czech composer, Antonín Dvořák (1841–1904). It presents Dvořák’s music in an interactive form, and guides the visitor through the composer’s life and oeuvre displaying rare personal items, correspondence and, above all, original scores of the most famous Dvořák compositions. Also on show: the autograph of the celebrated Symphony No. 9, "From the New World". Reminiscences, photographs, a graphological analysis and numerous anecdotes reveal the affections Dvořák had, how he liked to spend his leisure time and what his favourite food was.
