New World SymphonyOne of the most popular symphonies ever written

Antonin Dvořák’s Ninth Symphony "From the New World", also fondly known as the New World Symphonyis one of the most popular symphonies ever written. After having been appointed as artistic director of the National Conservatory of Music in New York, the composer discovered the music of Native and African Americans and incorporated folk melodies in the symphony.

The music evokes grand American vistas, yet also betrays a yearning nostalgia for Dvořák’s own Bohemian homeland. The charming second movement is truly one of the smash hits of the classical repertoire. 

Fabio Luisi also conducts Georges Bizet’s only symphony, the early Symphony in C major, an energetic and playful work that puts the Classical symphonic style of Haydn and Mozart in a bright French light. One could call it the music of eternal youth: the composer was only seventeen. An early hit by the man who would go on to compose the hugely popular opera Carmen.

All up-to-date information about the Dvořák New World Symphony concert can be found on the Concertgebouw Orchestra website.

The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra was founded in 1888. Its distinctive sound has made it one of the world’s leading orchestras. 

The orchestra is famous for its renditions of works by Gustav Mahler, Richard Strauss and Anton Bruckner, and for its long-standing concert traditions such as the St Matthew Passion in the week before Easter and the Christmas Matinee. It has always worked closely with contemporary composers.

World-famous guest conductors such as Riccardo Chailly, Iván Fischer, Antonio Pappano, Myung- whun Chung and Joanna Mallwitz will be coming to Amsterdam to lead the orchestra next season. 

The Concertgebouw Orchestra has had just seven chief conductors to date.
