Symphony No. 9


new_world_symphonyThe Symphony No. 9 in E minor, From the New World, Op. 95, B. 178 (Czech: Symfonie č. 9 e moll „Z nového světa“), popularly known as the New World Symphony, was composed by Antonín Dvořák in 1893 while he was the director of the National Conservatory of Music of America from 1892 to 1895


Second movement, Largo :
“The largo of the second movement has a hauntingly beautiful melody played by the English horn. There is a sense of longing about it, and a spiritual has been adapted from it, ‘Going Home’.

The English Horn (also known as the Cor Anglais) sounds a 5th lower than the oboe, and is a transposing instrument part of the oboe family.
