Dvořák in the New World
When the Czech composer Antonín Dvořák first set foot in America in 1892, he brought with him a tremendous wealth of old world musical tradition, handed down by such figures as Beethoven and Brahms. But Dvořák would quickly fall in love with the simple folk tunes of the African American spirituals and Native American songs. “These beautiful and varied themes are the product of the soil,” he was once quoted to have said, “They are the folk songs of America, and your composers must turn to them.” These raw melodies would inspire Dvořák to create one of the most renowned works of Western music, his famous Symphony “from the New World.” Join the San Antonio Symphony as we delve into the mind of a master composer and his masterpiece.
