Dvořák: Symphony No 9 in E minor, 'From the New World'
Leonidas Kavakos (violin)
Vienna Philharmonic, Andrés Orozco‐Estrada (conductor)
Dvořák’s ‘New World’ Symphony, with its wistful slow movement, is the centrepiece of the second concert from the Vienna Philharmonic – a programme of Central European works that showcases the orchestra’s distinctively rich sound. Andrés Orozco-Estrada pairs it with the composer’s colourful, folk-infused tone poem The Noonday Witch, in which a mother’s threats inadvertently summon a witch into her home. Cinematic drama is also a hallmark of Korngold’s richly orchestrated and unashamedly romantic Violin Concerto, performed here by soloist Leonidas Kavakos.
Followed by a selection of recordings from this week's Proms Artists.
