Antonín Dvorak was the happiest and least neurotic of the Romantics. He was barely literate and hardly a deep thinker (locomotives were his chief passion outside of music). The cheery Czech was greatly influenced by his native folk culture which inspired him to write a plethora of tuneful compositions. Jeffrey Engel will detail Dvorak’s life and play excerpts of his music.

Jeffrey Engel is a music historian who teaches at Northwestern Connecticut Community College. In 2010 he was selected by Litchfield Magazine as one of the fifty most influential people in Litchfield County.
