Antonín Dvořák: Patriotic Hymn from the poem The Heirs of White Mountain, Op. 30, B. 134
Antonín Dvořák: Symphony No. 9 in E minor, Op. 95, B. 178, ʻFrom the New Worldʻ
Again this year the festival is continuing in its mission of discovering unjustly neglected works by Dvořák. Among them is indisputably his effective Patriotic Hymn to words from the poem The Heirs of White Mountain, which brought the young composer his first major success. Together with a regular item in the festival’s offerings, the ‘New World’ Symphony, it will be given in an authentic interpretation on period instruments by a topflight ensemble engaged in historically-informed performance, Musica Florea.
