Rush Hour #3: From the New World
Antonín Dvořák Slavonic Dance No.8
Antonín Dvořák Symphony No.9 in E minor, Op.95 'From the New World'
Simon Over Conductor
A pianissimo longing theme sounds, interrupted by an unexpected explosive outburst from the orchestra. A sudden moment of high energy, Dvořák immediately immerses us in his spiritual and emotional journey through the New World. Tinged with melodic inflections of Native American and African-American styles, this symphony is packed with drama, nostalgia, hope, and rhythmic impetus. And from its earthy opening to the optimistic second movement and blazing finale, it’s not hard to see why this is one of classical music’s most loved works.
