Symphony No. 9, « From The New World »

America is an endless source of inspiration! Dvorak, though a Czech national, wrote one of the most powerful musical evocations of the USA: his famous New World Symphony, composed during his stay in New York as Director of the city’s Conservatory. Inspired by the music of “Blacks and Redskins”, the piece has been round the world; quite literally as Neil Armstrong chose it to accompany him on his journey to the Moon.
