A great and lasting favorite in the vast symphonic literature, Antonín Dvořák's "New World" Symphony is among the composer's most enduring and appealing works, exceptionally popular worldwide ever since its premiere in 1893. The work rose out of the composer's three-year stay in the United States, blending echoes of American Indian impressions with music that reflects Dvořák's Bohemian homeland. Folksy, evocative, spontaneous, endlessly melodic, and rhythmically alive and inventive, his Symphony No. 9 is the composer at his very best and most characteristic. This work appears in full score with original instrumentation, bar-numbered movements, and ample margins at the bottom of each score page for notes and analysis. Ideal for study in the classroom, at home, or in the concert hall, this affordable, high-quality, convenient-sized volume will be the edition of choice for music students and music lovers alike.
