An NCPA Presentation

Dvořák: Symphony No.9 (New World Symphony)

In this series of talks on Western classical music, Dr. Cavas Bilimoria takes listeners through musical concepts, the lives of composers and their famous works, sprinkled with examples of recorded music. The first set of talks in July dives into Czech composer Antonín Dvořák’s most well-known work, Symphony No. 9. It was composed in New York, when he was invited to be the Director of the National Conservatory of Music of America in 1892. Contact with the folk music of another land during this American sojourn opened up his imagination to yield the composition and its moniker, the New World Symphony.
