‘My head is so full of ideas,’ wrote Dvořák in the summer of 1889, ‘that it isn’t possible to write them all down straight away!’ That same year, he was able to capture many of those thoughts in his Eighth, full of the sounds of nature, folk tunes and dance rhythms. And then came his magnum opus: the opera Rusalka, overflowing with melodies – assembled by Manfred Honeck in a wonderful fantasy for orchestra.
