Wynton Marsalis: Violin Concerto
Antonín Dvořák: Symphony No. 9 “From the New World”
Jazz, blues, habanera, spirituals, and anthems are all part of this whirlwind of a violin concerto by American Jazz legend, Wynton Marsalis, and performed by sensational Bulgarian-American violinist Bella Hristova. Dvořák’s “New World” Symphony is considered the first attempt to write an American symphony. Is it a depiction of the New World, or an expression of longing for the “old” one? That’s up to our audience to decide.
