Dvořák Ninth Symphony 'From the New World'

America's lure tempted Dvořák to exchange his Prague life for the New World, where he wrote his Ninth. Less than a century later, Edo de Waart made the same crossing: he left Rotterdam to make a name for himself in the States and the rest of the world. Now he's home again. With this concert we celebrate his eightieth birthday and his precious half-century bond with our orchestra.

Introduction on Friday at 7.15 pm and on Sunday at 1.15 pm by Bart de Graaf.
