Mezzo-soprano Krista River loves Dvorak.

"I love the sound of the Eastern European influence in his music," she said over the phone from Boston. "I really like his Requiem because I think he depicts a transcendence of death. During some of the most horrific sections of the piece, there is another layer of beauty."
