Rpo: Dvořák’s ‘New World’ Symphony


Much-loved classics and tuneful discoveries from Domingo Hindoyan and Principal Trombone Matt Gee.

Don’t mention the Hovis ad (if you can even remember it), because – with its great tunes, grand emotions and sweeping drama – Dvořák’s Ninth Symphony, ‘From the New World’, was a favourite with audiences the world over long before TV even existed. Dvořák was inspired by America, but he never lost his Czech accent and Domingo Hindoyan, a conductor who is making waves, will bring out all the nostalgia (and joy) in the composer’s much-loved melodies.

First, though, take a whirl through old Bohemia in the lovely Scherzo fantastique by Dvořák’s son-in-law Josef Suk, and take a walk on the wild side with Tomasi’s swinging Trombone Concerto – a larger-than-life showcase for one of the RPO’s very own stars, trombonist Matt Gee.
