Claude Debussy was appointed by Gabriel Fauré in 1909 as Board member of the Paris Conservatoire. His first assignment was to write some compositions to be performed by the clarinet students on their exams. Debussy wrote the First Rhapsody, dedicated to clarinet teacher Prosper Mimart, initially for piano and clarinet, but was later so satisfied with his composition that he also made an orchestral version. A second rhapsody was planned, but was never realised.

Anti-Czech sentiment prevented the premiere of Antonín Dvořák’s Sixth Symphony in Vienna, even though it was written for Hans Richter, chief conductor of the Wiener Philharmoniker. Growing nationalism had transformed Dvořák in a few years from an acculturated German into a Czech who was too much competition for the Germanic culture prevailing in Vienna. However, following an extremely successful premiere in Prague, Dvořak’s Symphony No. 6 quickly gained popularity in the rest of Europe. Many were charmed by the balanced mix between Liszt and Wagner’s modernism, Brahms’ conservatism and many Czech folk elements (such as the use of a Bohemian dance, the furiant, in the third movement).
