SMETANA ‘Vltava’, Ma Vlast

CHOPIN Piano Concerto No. 1

DVORÁK Symphony No. 9,

From the New World

 

We open our twentieth anniversary season with two of the

best-loved works of all time – Chopin’s serene First Piano

Concerto and Dvorák’s New World Symphony. Dvorák found

inspiration in the America that had become his adopted

home, crafting his music around the traditional melodies of

Native American music and African-American spirituals.

Today, the symphony’s slow movement is still one of the

most instantly memorable moments in classical music,

featuring the quiet, song-like beauty of the cor anglais

solo.
