Dvořák Symphony no 8 in G major op 88 B 163

Enjoy Dvořák's uplifting Eighth Symphony in this bite-size, rush-hour concert.

This event forms part of a residency with musicians from the Chamber Orchestra of Europe (COE), named one of the 'best orchestras in the world' by BBC Music Magazine in 2023.

Directed by former guest leader of the COE, Mats Zetterqvist, Dvořák's 1890 work is brimming with optimism and hope, and is greatly inspired by the folk melodies of his Bohemian homeland.

This performance will be streamed live. To watch, please subscribe to the Royal College of Music’s YouTube channel and switch on notifications, or watch at
