Mozart's Attic Thursday August 10th at 10:00 PM
Antonin Dvorak's New World Symphony, his ninth, showed us how the common peoples' music of North America could form the basis of a new symphonic tradition.
His eighth symphony similarly showed us how the folk and peasant traditions of his native Bohemia could do the same thing.
Dvorak was a man out to prove a point. He certainly succeeded on this side of the Atlantic. See what you think about his work on the other side of the ocean.
