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 lively Bohemian folk tunes of his own homeland. Listen for the nostalgic “Goin’ Home”, a melody of Dvořák’s creation that went on to become a standard folk song in its own right. Patricia Kopatchinskaja’s captivating blend of technical prowess and fearless, free-spirited music-making has endeared her to audiences the world over. She makes her TSO début with Francisco Coll’s new Violin Concerto—written specially for her—and Ravel’s flashy Tzigane, conducted by Music Director Gustavo Gimeno.

Gustavo Gimeno's appearances are generously supported by Susan Brenninkmeyer in memory of Hans Brenninkmeyer.
