On December 16, 1893, Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9, “From the New World,” received its world premiere at Carnegie Hall. Written during the composer’s brief tenure in New York City, the symphony is American in its influences, but universal in its musical marvels. The Czech Philharmonic is the foremost interpreter of works by native son Dvořák, as conducted in this 2013 performance by Jiří Bělohlávek in Dvořák Hall of Prague’s Rudolfinum.
