SD Symphony Jacobs Masterworks: Dvorak & Dawson
750 B Street, San Diego, 92101
Conductor Joshua Weilerstein leads Antonín Dvořák’s enchanting Symphony No. 9, “From the New World.” The composer reflected on his time in the United States, and inspired by Black spirituals and Native American music, Dvořák created a work filled with majestic fanfares and brilliant melodies. Just four decades later in 1934, the world premiere of William Dawson’s passionate Negro Folk Symphony brought a Carnegie Hall audience to its feet in enthusiastic applause.
