Dvoráks Nieuwe Wereld
Dvorák’s Ninth Symphony is guaranteed to make your day. Everybody knows some hits from this all-time favourite. It goes without saying Neil Armstrong brought along a recording of the symphony during his Apollo 11 mission to the moon.
Dvorák wrote this masterpiece at the end of the 19th century when he was staying in America. He was inspired by the far vistas of the new world. With the melancholy echoes of the spiritual Swing Low, Sweet Chariot and the impetuous rhythms of native American dances, it is a given you will taste the American local colour. But Dvorák was also very homesick for his native Bohemia and he combined his love for life with an irresistible, Czech yearning. There is no way around it: conducted by maestro Dmitry Liss this will become a scintillating fiesta. Especially when combined with Rodrigo’s beloved Concierto de Aranjuez for guitar with―you know it!―that famous Adagio!
“I’m really looking forward to the expressive guitar playing of Juan Manuel Cañizares”.
Stefan Rosu, intendant
