Dvořák The Wild Dove, Op. 110

Antonín Dvořák wrote his symphonic poem The Wild Dove (also known as The Wood Dove, or Holoubek in Czech) in 1896. He revised it the following year, and it was finally premiered in 1898 in Brno, with Leoš Janáček conducting. The piece is usually listed as Op. 110, or B. 198, and its the fourth orchestral poem by the Czech composer. It is inspired by the poem of the same name found in Kyrice, a collection of balladas by Karel Jaromir Erben. The orchestral poem describes the story of a woman who kills his husband to marry another man. Shortly after this, a dove sits on the grave of his victim and sings a sad song day after day, driving the woman into guilt-induced suicide
