Overview

The composer worked on this symphonic poem from January to April of 1896. The title refers to a Czech folk ballad in which a king falls in love with Domicka while riding and requests his step-mother to bring the young woman back to his castle. The evil step-mother and her daughter kill the hapless girl, with the daughter disguises herself as Domicka, marrying the king just before his departure to war. A magician finds Domicka's remains in the forest and tricks the false bride to give up the missing part of Domicka's remains in return for a Golden Spinning Wheel. The work was premiered in London on October 26, 1896 with Hans Richter conducting the London Symphony. This new study score is a digitally enhanced reissue of the full score first published in 1958 by the Czech State Publishers as part of the Dvorak collected works, edited by Jarmil Burghauser. Unlike so many of the on-demand scores now available, this one comes with all the pages and the images have been thoroughly checked to make sure it is readable. As with all PLP scores a percentage of each sale is donated to the amazing online archive of free music scores and recordings, IMSLP - Petrucci Music Library.
