 Update me on new releases by Nedbal

Oskar Nedbal (3/24/1874 - 12/24/1930)

Rejected initially as a violin student (although he had learnt as a child), Oskar Nedbal took lessons on the trumpet and then percussion when he began at the Prague Conservatory aged ten or eleven. He eventually got into Antonín Bennewitz’s violin class but was steered towards the viola because of his powerful physique. Bennewitz, who also taught Josef Suk I and Ševčík, and whose musical lineage goes back to Viotti, was a major figure in the Czech musical tradition. The Chamber Music Association which he cofounded encouraged and inspired a readily discernible national style amongst Czech performers and composers. Nedbal also benefitted from composition classes with Dvořák. He and Suk were star pupils at the time and remained close to Dvořák after graduating from the Conservatory, Dvořák considering Nedbal the finest interpreter of his music (including as a conductor).
