Mozart's Attic Thursday June 1st 10:00 PM
In 1892, Antonin Dvorak, rapidly becoming the toast of Europe, accepted the director’s post at a New York conservatory. The school – totally integrated racially and by gender – wanted a “name,” and Dvorak wanted an opportunity to study American music. Could there have been a better match?
The conservatory didn’t last, but Dvorak’s music “From the New World” did. We’ll feature one of those works, the Cello Concerto, this week.
