Dvořák’s New World Symphony
Symphony No9 From the New World
Gilbert Varga CONDUCTOR
Kristóf Baráti VIOLIN
Royal Scottish National Orchestra
Some pieces are classics for a reason – and when it comes to the New World Symphony we don’t just mean the Hovis ad! Dvořák’s great symphony of exile, hope and nostalgia has been stirring the emotions of audiences ever since 1893, and the Violin Concerto by his great friend Brahms is every bit as enjoyable too. Violinist Kristóf Baráti gives it a dash of Hungarian spice tonight – but first, conductor Gilbert Varga shares a magical rediscovery from Wales.
