ANTONÍN DVORÁK 

Symphony No. 9 in E minor, op. 95, 'From the New World'


the music

Composed in 1970 for Rostropovich, the Violin Concertois one of Lutosławski’s most engaging works. The long introduction by the soloist joined by a striking brass rhythm, provoking conflict; the use of quarter tones and some unpredictable passages create a fascinating atmosphere. “Czech music is impossible to imagine without my American experience” said Dvořák of his Symphony From the New World, which symbolises the optimistic and conquering spirit of New York and the young nation.
