ANTONÍN DVOŘÁK        Cello Concerto in B minor, op. 104

Antonín Dvořák (1841–1904) set out to compose the Cello Concerto in New York, completing it in Bohemia in 1895. Enthusiastic about the work, Brahms said, “Had I known that one could write a cello concerto like this, I would have written one long ago!” In tribute to his dying first love (his sister-in-law), Dvořák included in the third movement a quotation of her favourite song of his, “Leave Me Alone”.

ANTONÍN DVOŘÁK   Symphony No. 9 “From the New World”, op. 95

  1. Adagio – Allegro molto;  II. Largo;  III. Molto vivace;  IV. Allegro con fuoco

Dvořák composed the “New World Symphony” in 1893 while he was the director of the National Conservatory of Music of America. From the outset, he sought to give the work an American feel, with references to Black and Native American musical traditions (such as pentatonic scales and melodies), melding it with contrasting music from his native land.
