PROGRAM NOTES Dvorak: “New World” Symphony in E Minor, Op. 95 This magnificent and evocative symphony is being performed by the Keene Chamber Orchestra today in response to the fervent wishes of the members of Keene All-City Elementary Chorus. Dvorak arrived in New York City on September 27, 1892, to direct the newly formed National Conservatory of Music, the precursor to what is now The Juilliard School. During his tenure as director, he admitted women as students, extremely revolutionary at the time. When the Board of Trustees subsequently pressed him to remove the women students, he resigned his directorship in protest. Dvorak was also asked to help found an “American School of Composition”, but Dvorak, whose music was centered around Bohemian folk traditions from his native Czechoslovakia, proclaimed, to the surprise and consternation of his hosts: “I am convinced that the future music of this country must be founded on what are called Negro melodies. They can be the foundation of a serious and original school of composition to be developed in the United States.... There is nothing in the whole range of composition that cannot find a thematic source here.” Dvorak’s knowledge of this “Negro” music came from Henry Thacker Burleigh, an African-American song writer and student of his who sang the traditional melodies to the enthralled composer. Burleigh later recalled, “There is no doubt that Dr. Dvorák was very deeply impressed by the Negro spirituals from the old plantation. He just saturated himself in the spirit of those old tunes, and then invented his own themes.” Dvorak was also drawn to Native American music and traditions, and noted that the second movement of the New World Symphony, in the style of a Negro spiritual, was inspired by the forest funeral of Minnehaha from Longfellow’s “Song of Hiawatha.” Dvorak came to see his symphony as not strictly “American”. He was struck by the universality of folk expression and said that the music he composed in America could also be perceived as “genuine Bohemian music.” The “New World” Symphony received its premier at Carnegie Hall in New York City, performed by the New York Philharmonic, on December 16, 1893, coincidentally Beethoven’s birthday. The love affair between this symphony and its audience, which has continued unabated throughout the world to the present day, was immediate and spontaneous. Each movement was greeted with thunderous applause, which only stopped when Dvorak stood and bowed to his adoring public.
