Toronto Symphony Orchestra: Gimeno + Dvořák’s “New World”


A convergence of old and new worlds inspired something truly special in Dvořák’s soul-stirring “New World” Symphony, in which he drew upon the musical traditions that so impressed him during his time in America, along with the vibrant folk melodies of his own Czech homeland. You’ll also hear Martinů’s evocative The Rock, mid-20th century music similarly inspired by the opportunity of a “new world”. A World Première from Toronto-based composer Luis Ramirez opens the concert, and Berlin Philharmonic Principal Horn Stefan Dohr gives the Canadian Première of Abrahamsen’s Horn Concerto, which was written especially for him.
