Antonn Dvor¤k's Symphony No. 9 in G Major, Op. 95, subtitled From the New World, was the work that spread his name throughout the world. Prior to the piece's 1893 premiere in Carnegie Hall, Dvor¤k's music was performed in only about ten countries. But the enormous, nearly instant popularity of this symphony changed that in short order. Written during his stay in the United States, his New World symphony has sparked much debate about Americana contained in this music. After the premiere one critic asserted, He (Dvor¤k) has compelled recognition ... that there are musical elements in America which lend themselves to beautiful treatment in the higher forms of art. Today, his ninth symphony remains one of the most often played, well-known, well-loved works of the symphonic literature.
