Dvořák’s “New World” Symphony

Paul Marc Mitchell

In his New World Symphony, Antonín Dvořák frames his impressions of the music he heard in America through the lens of his Bohemian roots. Led by Joshua Weilerstein, the program opens with Alexi Kenney performing Jean Sibelius’ Violin Concerto, an impassioned showpiece written by a composer whose first love was the violin.
