Symphony No.9 "From the New World"
Bold, thrilling and moving all at once. Premiered 120 years ago upon Dvořák's arrival in the U.S., his Ninth Symphony is emblematic of a foreigner’s portrayal of the life and times of early America. Experience a perfect collision of folk tunes and gypsy flavor from Dvořák's native Bohemia and his impressions of an exciting turn of-the-century life in the “New World.” Oh, and don't forget the killer English horn solo!
