The subtitle of Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9 is important: it’s not ‘To the New World’; it’s ‘From the New World’. This is very much a symphony that looks back, from the USA where Dvorak and his family were staying, to his native Bohemia. ‘It’s almost as if he was on top of the Empire State Building looking out to see if he can spot his faraway homeland,’ says Katherine.
