Dvorak's New World Symphony and the New York Philharmonic

A Film and Roundtable Discussion.

Antonin Dvorak's New World Symphony was premiered by the New York Philharmonic (the Orchestra’s first major world premiere) at Carnegie Hall on December 16, 1893. The special relationship between the Orchestra and Dvorak, who was made an Honorary Member, will be explored in this discussion with Barbara Haws, Archivist and Historian of the New York Philharmonic, conductor Maurice Peress, and musicologist Michael Beckermann. View the special exhibit in the Dvorak Room of original manuscript orchestral parts and documents on loan for a limited time courtesy of the New York Philharmonic Archives, and see a film of the Philharmonic’s 2008 performance of the New World Symphony in Pyongyang, North Korea. Event sponsored by the Dvorak American Heritage Association and Czech Center New York.
