Antonin Dvorak - Song To The Moon

In America there has been a huge retrospective on the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.  I'm not sure whether it's getting the same commemoration around the world, but here it's a big source of national pride.  In 1901 Antonin Dvořák was a similar source of Czech national pride.  For years this opera was performed almost exclusively for Czech audiences, leading to a perception in the rest of the world that Dvořák didn't write operas.  Now it's one of his most famous pieces.

Can't understand a word, but beautiful music. Was this your first Dvorak piece?

Libertyman, I posted his New World Symphony back in 2011. That's probably his most famous.
