Many composers are deeply identified with the music of their homeland. Antonin Dvorak’s music is laced with Slavic melody, and his work was essential in creating a Czech musical style. Igor Stravinsky’s early music speaks to the power of Russian folk music. But both composers spent vital years in the United States, and were profoundly influenced by the experience.

Antonin Dvorak : "American" Quartet in Eb, op 51
Antonin Dvorak : Romance in F for Violin
Igor Stravinsky : Pastorale
Igor Stravinsky : Eight Instrumental Miniatures
