All-Star Orchestra

The New World And Its Music

Season 1, Episode 3 of 8

Antonin Dvorak: Symphony No. 9 "From the New World"; Ellen Taaffe Zwilich: Avanti! Inspired by American dreams and legends, Dvorak created some of his greatest works while living in the United States; above all, the "New World" Symphony. This program will investigate the multiple stories and influences - Native American, African-American, and Czech -that Dvorak transformed in his most forward-looking symphony. Ellen Taaffe Zwilich's Avanti! offers a contemporary interpretation of the American archetype of "moving on." Commentators will include author Joseph Horowitz, Dvorak expert Michael Beckerman and Ellen Taaffe Zwilich.
