Dvorak came to the USA in December of 1892. Three years later, he returned to Bohemia. In the meantime, he wrote three of his most popular pieces and 3 of the most popular pieces in all of classical music, the American String Quartet, the Cello Concerto, and the topic for today, his New World Symphony. Season 4 begins with a look at this incredible symphony, a fusion of the work of both a fully European composer and a man who had fallen in love with music he had never heard before, but would never forget.
