Comments about PBS Dvorak and America DVD:

This was a good attempt to show the life & thoughts of Antonin Dvorak. If for a music class it would move too slow to keep attention on some parts, but favorite sections or music could be cued to show to a class.

Comments about PBS Dvorak and America DVD:

This film was a great surprise. If you thought Dvorak only wrote the New World Symphony in America, and nothing else, this will be a shock. I bought this because I was interested in the symphony, but I didn't expect this fascinating lesson in Black history. Totally unexpected. Get it.
