Overture, "Mein Heim". Op. 62

Antonín Dvorák
(1862-1918)



The overture "Mein Heim" ("My Home") is based upon two themes from Bohemian folk songs. Both appear in the introduction, which, opening pianissimo, works up to a fortissimo. It gradually dies away, but soon through a vigorous crescendo leads to the main section of the overture, which opens with a new subject in dance time. After a brilliant development of this subject a quieter second subject appears, which is followed by subsidiary passages from the first. The first subject also appears in the Coda, closing the overture.
