The Symphony of Love (Americké dopisy, 2015)
Director: Jaroslav Brabec
Everything in life has a price… But what’s the real price of true love? Eurochannel premieres The Symphony of Love, a period romantic drama about the true feelings of a world-famous composer and his struggles with his heart and his religious beliefs.
Antonin Dvorak is maybe one of the most famous music composers who has ever existed in Europe. A genius in his homeland, he went to become one of Brahms dearest friends and one of the greatest European composers to have lived in the United Estates and became director of the National Conservatory of Music in New York City. But while he enjoyed professional success, his love life was the opposite.
The Symphony of Love follows Antonin Dvorak’s romantic life, a whirlwind of emotions that will move you to tears. It all starts when the composer receives a letter in New York. The news from his hometown will change his and his family’s destiny forever.
As the plot develops, it is revealed that Dvorak’s true muse was his sister-in-law, who now lies utterly sick in her house in Czechoslovakia and only longs to see Antonin before she dies.
Praised by the specialised media and critics, The Symphony of Love became one of the most successful biopics in Central Europe in recent years. The movie won the Czech Lion for Best television film or miniseries in its homeland, and also took the Jury’s Special Prize at the Seoul International Drama Awards in 2015.
