Popularly know as the “New World Symphony,” Antonín Dvorák’s Symphony No. 9 in E minor was composed in 1893 while he was the director of the National Conservatory of Music of America. A major part of the orchestral repertoire, this symphony’s melodic material was influenced by the music of Native Americans and African-American spirituals he heard during his tenure in North America, while his sense of America’s “wide open spaces” after a visit to Iowa’s prairies also inspired the feeling of the work. The fourth movement is among the most popular and recognizable single movements from the symphonic repertoire. Instrumentation in set: 22.214.171.124: 126.96.36.199: Timp.Perc(1): Str (9-8-7-6-5 in set).
