- Symphony No 9 in E minor, 'From the New World'
About This Event
Have you ever wondered about the story behind Dvořák’s haunting Symphony No. 9, with its yearning Largo and its ebullient, dancing Scherzo? Originally devised by Gerard McBurney and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, this newly remounted Beyond the Score® performance combines actors, projections and live musical examples to explore the history of this enduringly popular orchestral classic.
In the second half, Sir Mark Elder and the Hallé give a complete performance of the symphony. A fascinating, dramatic insight into one of the great works of the symphonic repertoire.
