Dvorak's "New World Symphony", also known as his Ninth Symphony, was one of the first major works to incorporate American folk-music influences. It's been wildly popular ever since its premiere in 1893 -- in fact, Neil Armstrong famously took a recording of it with him to the moon. Subtitled "From the New World", this masterpiece of the classical canon fuses folk tunes, eastern Europe rhythms and sounds from Dvorák's native Bohemia. Hear it played by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, led by conductor Ken-David Masur, at the world-famous Hollywood Bowl. This program will also feature acclaimed pianist Inon Barnatan, called "one of the most admired pianists of his generation" by "The New York Times", playing an LA Phil commission, Alan Fletcher's Piano Concerto.
