"Rob Kapilow is the best presenter of classical music appreciation around today."

Featuring the Manhattan School of Music Chamber Sinfonia
An opening night review of Haydn's “London” Symphony said that “for 50 years to come Musical Composers would be little better than imitators of Haydn; and would do little more than pour water on his leaves.” Almost 100 years later, Dvořák, in his Eighth Symphony, was still pouring water on Haydn’s leaves but doing so in a way that completely reinvented Haydn's legacy for the 19th century. Join Rob Kapilow and the MSM Chamber Sinfonia as they explore Dvořák’s unique blend of Haydn, Brahms and Bohemian folk music in one of the most popular symphonies ever written.
