Dvorák’s New World: Jax Symphony

Dvořák’s New World

January 22-23

Antonín Dvořák spent the summer of 1893 in Iowa, and it was America’s endearing, wide-open terrain that inspired the spacious sounds of his Ninth Symphony. The roots of the second movement’s famous English horn tune, sometimes known as “Goin’ Home,” can be traced to Dvořák’s exposure to African-American spirituals. Jessie Montgomery’s tribute to our National Anthem’s 200th anniversary opens the program. Associate Conductor Gonzalo Farias takes the podium in his Jacksonville Symphony Masterworks debut.
