About the Dvorak No. 9 Symphony
The No. 9 Symphony was composed in 1893 during a visit to the United States. It is also referenced as “From the New World,” and was mentioned as No. 5 in earlier recordings and mentions. There are four movements in this piece, and was debuted at Carnegie Hall. Dvorak was a Czech composer of late romantic music; sometimes his style is referred to as romantic-classical fusion. The No.9 Symphony is one of his best known works.
