Dvorak's Ninth Symphony 'From the New World' is one of his most popular works, as well as one of the most famous orchestral works in the repertoire. The music combines Dvorak's Czech rhythms with the sounds of American songs and spirituals, resulting in a glorious outpouring of melody, most notably the cor anglais solo in the second movement. This arrangement aims to create a full orchestral picture from a smaller ensemble, using only the instruments in Dvorak's score. Hearing the clarity of individual lines can reveal hidden aspects of the score, adding an intimacy in the performing and listening experience, as well as enabling this work to be performed in smaller venues without enormous financial constraints.
Instrumentation: flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, trumpet, trombone, timpani, percussion (triangle, cymbals), violin 1, violin 2, viola, cello, double bass (minimum 2, 2, 2, 2, 1)
