Dvorak 's Symphony No. 8 is a highly bohmian one , which is also known by many as the "Poetic Symphony" because of its taste of interest. The Symphony was written in the summer and autumn of 1889, when the composer was in his Vesoka country house. Of all Dvorak 's symphonies, this one has the most personal involvement and uniqueness. It reflects a purely calm state of mind and a sense of joy and pride, which is closely related to the composer 's specific state of mind and experience; Here, the composer does not shy away from the direct connection with the Czech folk music country that inspired and nurtured him, and the whole work is full of love for the land of the motherland and its people and art, as if directly from the bohemian wilderness and Czech folk.

Slavonic Dances is one of Dvorak 's masterpieces. Although it is named "Dance Music", it is not practical music used to accompany dancers, but the orchestral music written by composers in the form of folk dance music, which belongs to the music of the concert hall. Writing short lyrics in the form of folk dance music is a common practice of romantic music, and Chopin's Mazurka and Polonaise, Weber 's Allemande, Brahms' Hungarian dance music, all belong to this kind of music. In these small pieces named after the dance music, the composer deliberately pursues the lyrical melody, using it to appeal directly to emotion, so that these dance music becomes pure lyrical works. "Slavonic Dances" is popular with its brilliant colors, warm youthful atmosphere and simple inner lyricism, and Dvorak deserves to be a composer with a world reputation.
