Dvořák Symphony No.9 From the New World

About this performance

Jaime Martín leads the Orchestra in a performance of one of classical music's most popular works – Dvořák's New World Symphony.

Dvořák wrote his Ninth Symphony as a fresh arrival in New York, having just started as Director of the newly-formed National Conservatory of Music. Inspired by the soul of African American spirituals, Dvořák aimed to embody its character in orchestral form.

Duration: approx. 50 minutes, no interval.

Maestro Jaime Martín’s position as MSO Chief Conductor is supported by Dr Marc Besen AC and the late Dr Eva Besen AO.
