Notes and Editorial Reviews
EMI Classics presents a new recording of two of Dvorak s best loved works together on disc the Symphony No. 9 in E minor From the New World and his Cello Concerto in B minor. These two works are not often paired together on recordings. hey were recorded live during the 11/12 Santa Cecilia season.
Dvorak wrote the 9th symphony following a trip to America. It is imbued with the rhythms of Native American immigrant folk music cast in the language of the 19th century romantic musical language.
Antonio Pappano, born in America but working in the European tradition, sees this piece in new and fresh ways because of his own heritage. This is the first time Pappano has conducted Dvorak's 9th symphony. This is a rare
recording of the first edition of the Dvorak Cello Concerto, performed by renowned Italian cellist Mario Brunello. It is a far less frequently heard version.
