Czech composer Antonin Dvořák, famous for his Symphony No.9 'From the New World', was passionate about his homeland and its traditional music.
A great nurturer of young talent, Dvořák launched the careers of other Czech composers such as Josef Suk, pictured, and Vítězslav Novák. In 1897 Dvořák's daughter Otilie married Suk. In the same year, Dvořák was appointed a member of the jury for the Viennese Artist's Stipendium, and was later honoured with a medal.
