Dvořák Symphony No. 8 in G Major, Op. 88
James Judd Conductor
Compared to Dvořák’s more sombre 7th Symphony, the 8th is often seen as joyful and idyllic, although it is not without its darker moments. From the brooding opening theme in the cellos to the joyful trumpet fanfare of the final movement, Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8 is a work of great contrasts.
