Dvorak: Symphony No. 9 "From the New World" - Decca - 417 267 - 1

£5.99

Product description

Dvorak, following a long line of classical composers displayed a prodigious talent for music at an early age, expressing sublime tendencies on the violin at the age of six, a certain type of genius whose music would always convey a distinctness of clarity while retaining an awe inspiring depth. Adhering to a fiercely proud tradition in Czech of nationalism, expressed musically through a romantic inclination toward the country's past, lost traditions, rituals and ideals; Dvorak delved in to Czech history to create music which was imbued with a yearning, a nostalgic sadness and ancient pride. Described as "the fullest recreation of a national idiom with that of the symphonic tradition, absorbing folk influences and finding effective ways of using them."
Dvorak's Symphony no 9, popularly known as "New World" symphony is by far the most popular of all Dvorak's symphonies and of symphonies in general. Indeed, when it was first performed in Carnergie Hall, the end of each movement was met with thunderous clapping. Furthermore, the New York Herald described it “a noble composition…of heroic proportions.”
Vinyl very good condition, no scratches and very little dust. Box is in good condition with a slight tear on the front at the decca logo.
Matrix No. 18861
