OVERVIEW

FEARLESS EXPLORATION.

As Neil Armstrong took the iconic first steps on the moon, he brought along a recording of Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9 “From the New World” to accompany him on his own new world journey. Inspired by his time in America, Dvořák drew upon Native American melodies and African American spirituals. The program also features Dutilleux’ shimmering cello concerto Tout un monde lointain, inspired by the poetry of French poet Charles Baudelaire.
