New Jersey Symphony Orchestra: Winter Festival America, Inspiring: Dovrák’s “New World” Symphony

XIAN ZHANG conductor
CHLOË HANSLIP violin
NEW JERSEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Come hear the piece that embodies and inspired the Winter Festival: Dvořák’s Ninth. Chloë Hanslip, praised by BBC Music Magazine for her “panache, poise and laser-like accuracy,” will shine in Austrian emigré Korngold’s resplendent violin concerto. 

BRITTEN Simple Symphony
Nimble and exuberant, this piece draws on music the British master wrote as a student.

KORNGOLD Violin Concerto
Technically demanding, yet warm and richly expressive. Korngold conquered Hollywood with film music in this vein, a precursor to the scores of John Williams.

DVOŘÁK Symphony No. 9, “From the New World”
Written during his time in the United States, Dvořák’s glorious magnum opus was inspired by Native American melodies and African-American spirituals.
