From the New World

The most famous piece of Dvorak – IX Symphony in E minor, Op.95 - was made in the United States , under the fascination for nature, culture of indigenous people and the atmosphere of the multimillion city. All of those rich experiences and impressions perfectly reflect the particular parts of the Symphony, called by the composer himself "From the New World".

The premiere of the piece took place in New York in 1893 and has become one of the biggest events in the musical life of the United States . A lot of people visited Carnegie Hall on that day.

"New York Herald " in 1893, described the composition:
Great symphony of Dvorak! - The miracle of beauty! – The Director of the National Conservatory offered a masterpiece to the musical literature - the first part is the most tragic , the second the most beautiful , the third the most amusing!

Dvorak himself wrote about his piece : " It gives me a great joy and it will much differ from my previous symphonies. Well , anyone who has a good nose, must feel the America’s influence . “From the New World"- that is, impressions and greetings from the New World ... "
