He emigrated to the United States in 1941 after the invasion of France, where he became, after Antonín Dvořák, especially with his symphonies and instrumental concerts (piano, harpsichord, violin etc.), the most significant Czech symphonic composer earning global prestige. There he joined intonated Czech music with his homesickness for his native country, to which he could never return. His chamber as well as choral works (the cantata Gilgameš, Polní mše (Field Mass), Songs, Chorales) are prolific. He wrote 15 operas (including Three Wishes, Miracles of Mary, Julietta, and The Greek Passion), and 14 ballets.
