Dvorak Symphony No. 9 "From the New World" 3rd movement
Dvorak Symphony No. 9 "From the New World" 3rd movement Antonin Dvorak, a nationalistic composer from Czechoslovakia, was lured to New York in 1892 to the newly founded National Conservatory of Music. He was enthralled by what he saw as our nationalistic music. He infused the nature of Negro spirituals with the spirit of Native American Indian tunes into his work. His Symphony No. 9 "From the New World" was composed during his first year in America and has become one of the most popular orchestral pieces in the classical Kamuela Philharmonic.

"Going Home" - Dvorak
"Going Home" - Dvorak Sissel sings "Going Home" (Dvorak music) This song is an adaptation of Antonin Dvorak's Symphony No.9 in E-Minor, Op. 95 'From the New World': II. Largo. Sissel Kyrkjebø is one of my favorite singers. From Wikipedia: Sissel is considered one of the world's top crossover sopranos. Sissel's musical style runs the gamut from pop recordings and folk songs, to classical vocals and operatic arias. She possesses a "crystalline" voice and wide vocal range, sweeping down from mezzo-soprano notes, in arias such as Mon cœur s'ouvre à ta voix from Saint-Saëns's opera Samson et Dalila, to the F natural above soprano C. She sings mainly in English and Norwegian, but has also sung songs in Swedish, Danish, Gaelic, Italian, French, Russian, Icelandic, Faeroese, German, Neapolitan, Māori, Japanese and Latin. She is well known for singing the Olympic Hymn (Hymne Olympique) at the opening and closing ceremonies of the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway; for duets with Plácido Domingo, Charles Aznavour, José Carreras, Neil Sedaka, Warren G, Brian May, Bryn Terfel, Josh Groban, Diana Krall, Russell Watson and The Chieftains; and her participation on the Titanic film soundtrack. ♥♥♥ Do enjoy this song as much as I do. ♥♥♥ video scenery: Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco It was cold and raining today (about 4:30pm February 19, 2011), that's why portion of the video is a tiny bit shaky.

Zuill Bailey - Dvořák: Cello Concerto Follow Zuill on Facebook: www.facebook.com Zuill Bailey Records Dvorak Cello Concerto with Jun Markl and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra Live Recording Features "Cellist's most celebrated concerto" Cellist Zuill Bailey - whose 2010 recording of JS Bach's Suites for Solo Cello went straight to the top of the Billboard classical chart - releases Dvorak Cello Concerto on the Telarc label on January 17, 2012, in collaboration with conductor Jun Markl and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. Zuill Bailey has always had a wonderful artistic relationship with the Indianapolis Symphony, with whom he performs regularly. "The opportunity to perform the concerto live with the Symphony was monumental for me as a performing artist," said Bailey. "To capture the greatest concerto written for any instrument live with the Indianapolis Symphony was an incredibly inspiring and a vital musical experience." Bailey refers to the Dvorak Cello Concerto as 'the Cellist's most celebrated Concerto.' "This recording captures the excitement, vitality and electricity that comes with a live performance." He performs the Elgar Cello Concerto with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra in March 2012, and has garnered praise for recent performances of the Dvorak with groups such as the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra. The artist's passion for Opus 104 belies the composer's misgivings on writing a cello concerto: "The cello is a beautiful instrument, but its place is in the orchestra and in chamber music ...

Adela Bratu Dvorak violin conc. mvt 3 conducts Ovidiu Balan.wmv Conducts Ovidiu Balan Ploiesti Philharmonic Orchestra Violin Concerto in A minor, Op. 53 (B108) is a concerto for violin and orchestra composed by Antonín Dvorák in 1879. The concerto was premiered in 1883 by František Ondrícek in Prague. He also gave the premieres in Vienna and London. Today it remains an important work in the violin repertoire. The concerto's structure is the classical three movements of fast-slow-fast. The second movement is most famous for its beautiful lyricism. Allegro ma non troppo Adagio ma non troppo Finale: Allegro giocoso ma non troppo Antonín Dvorák was inspired to write his concerto after having met Joseph Joachim in 1878 and composed the work with the intention of dedicating it him. However, when he finished the concerto in 1879, Joachim became skeptical about it. Joachim was a strict classicist and objected to Dvorák's inter alia, or his abrupt truncation of the first movement's orchestral tutti. Joachim also didn't like the fact that the recapitulation was cut short and that it led directly to the slow second movement. It is also assumed that he was upset with the persistent repetition found in the third movement. However, Joachim never said anything outright and instead claimed to be editing the solo part. He never actually performed the piece.
