Myth of the New World
March 1 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pmPrepaid Cost: $15 – $20
Presented by Deborah O’Grady and Melinda Haas, L.C.S.W.
Underneath the sense of hope and expansiveness in the New World is a shadow that has been there from its first colonization to the present moment. Dvořák set out to find and compose “American music.” What he created is a collage, suggestions of the hope of immigrants in the boundless space; the presence of slavery; the treatment of Native Americans; the pristine beauty of the natural resources. Even more poignant today, we hear this music with all its shadows fully in the light.
This presentation will offer an exploration of Dvořák’s signature work, Symphony No. 9, “New World,” through the lens of myth as part of the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Ives/Dvořák festival. Maestro Gustavo Dudamel will lead performances of the piece on February 27-29, 2020 at Walt Disney Concert Hall.
This program will be held at the Jung Institute.
