An expectant melody that rises from the deepest regions of the orchestra: this is how Dvořák's masterly Seventh begins. ‘The theme came to me,’ the composer wrote, ‘when I saw the train from Hungary arriving at the station in Prague.’ Artist in Residence Leonidas Kavakos takes us with him on a long train journey: from the Romanian border, via Hungarian villages where bears dance, to the heart of Bohemia.
