Symphony No. 9 “From the New World”
Add to calendar“Anyone with ears can spot the American influence,” Antonin Dvorák said about his ninth symphony, “From The New World”, which he composed in 1893 during his time as Director of the National Conservatory in New York.
Attentive listeners may detect echoes of spirituals as well as the kind of country tunes and revival songs traditionally sung by farmers and European settlers in the frontier lands. The symphony is the work of an experienced composer: not a single note is superfluous, the work’s structure is clear as glass, its proportions perfect, as Dvorák parades one captivating theme after another in front of us. Sheer musical ecstasy!
