Homesickness in Classical Music: Dvorak's Symphony No. 9, "From the New World"
In English
-
Longing for home is projected in many great works of classical music. One of the most prominent examples is Symphony No. 9, "From the New World," by Czech composer Antonin Dvorak, which was created during his three-year residency in New York from 1892 to 1895. The music references Native American and African-American melodies, but also shows strong links to Czech traditional music. Thus, the symphony is a powerful testament of Dvorak's feelings abroad that ranged from excitement about the "New World" to homesickness for his home country.
