Dvořák’s ninth and final symphony is also his most famous. Dubbed “From the New World” as the composer wrote it while in America and borrowed heavily from American spiritual tunes, it captures something of the grandeur and frontier spirit of the day, even in the tender second movement, an orchestral expression of the song “Goin’ Home.” This concert fuses the new world with the old, as Mozart’s stormy 40th symphony and the overture to his brief comedy The Impresario fill out the front half of the program.
