Antonín Dvořák was a Bohemian composer in the Romantic Era. He played violin and organ, often in local dance bands. Though suffering major musical set backs during his early composing years (losing an entire written symphony in a fire and an opera that failed to make it to the stage), Dvořák persevered and wrote many successful pieces in later years.
