NSO: Dvořák Symphony 'From the New World'
Julio García-Vico, conductor
Denis Kozhukhin, piano
Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2
Dvořák Symphony No. 9, ‘From the New World’
New horizons and home thoughts from abroad colour two stirring masterpieces.
Brahms’ passionate and whimsical Second Piano Concerto perfectly blends the grandiose and the intimate, Dvořák’s From the New World an homage to America’s frontier spirit and soul, the achingly beautiful melody at its heart speaking of homesickness for the composer’s native Bohemia.
Denis Kozhukhin, ‘a focused wave of energy’ (Bachtrack), is the soloist for the Brahms, Julio García-Vico, ‘the real deal’ (Medici), conducts.
