Dvorak: What's your favorite?

In light of our discussion this week regarding Dvořák and the “American” sound, here is a listening list of some of his other American works. What is your favorite and why?

New World Symphony
Cello Concerto in B
String Quartet No. 12 in F “American”
String Quintet in E-flat
American Suite


  1. Of the above, New World Symph. of course. GREAT work.
    I actually like Symph. 8 better though...
    The American Qt. is my favorite chamber work.

    1. You cannot go wrong with the Symphony No. 8! My favorite of his works is the American Quartet. The second movement is magnificent!
