DVOŘÁK Symphony No. 9 (From the New World)

The GVYO opens its Season of Symphonies with a programme that celebrates the triumph of the human spirit. The overture to Verdi’s opera Nabucco has at its heart the famous “Va, pensiero” theme, the beautiful lament of the exiled people of Judah before King Nabucco finally sets them free. Supermaximum by Kenji Bunch is an uplifting work inspired by chain-gang prisoners and their response to hardships with music instead of violence. Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9 is a majestic work evocative of “the new world”. Brimming with instantly-recognized themes such as “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” and “Goin’ Home”, it is perhaps Dvorak’s best-loved work.
