Dvorak's Symphony No. 9, the New World Symphony, is played so often that it runs the risk of sounding hackneyed. That fact became painfully obvious to me during a recent visit to Japan, when I heard the symphony's beautiful English horn melody in a cheesy, electronic rendition, signaling "all clear to walk" at a bustling Sapporo intersection. I was reminded of how Johannes Brahms was moved by Dvorak's melodic gifts, as well as his ability to spin a seemingly infinite number of variations on a tune. This, combined with Dvorak's Bohemian heritage, results in music unlike any other composer's. 9 is nicknamed New World because Dvorak wrote it during the time he spent in the . His experiences in America (including his discovery of African-American and Native-American melodies) and his longing for home color his music with mixed emotions.
78 Antonín Dvořák; Baltimore Symphony Orchestra; Marin Alsop. 95, B. 178 "From the New World". This album was mastered using our 2xHD proprietary system. The process begins with a transfer to analog from the original 24bits/96kHz resolution master, using cutting edge D/A converters. The analog signal is then sent through a hi-end tube pre-amplifier before being recorded directly in DXD using the dCS905 A/D and the dCS Vivaldi Clock
Antonin Dvořák didn’t exactly reinvent himself when he took up residence in New York as conservatory director in 1892, but his natural instinct for understanding audiences gave rise to a major change in style. 95 (From the New World); Symphonic Variations, Op. 78. 20 January 2012 - 5:08pm.
