‘From the New World’ is the subtitle of Dvorák’s famous Symphony No. 9, implying a departure into a new musical
world and representing a bridge between the European and American music traditions and their influences.
Dvorák’s music shares the programme with works by Samuel Barber and Aaron Copland.
