IVES: The Unanswered Question
IVES: Symphony No. 4
DVOŘÁK: Symphony No. 9, “New World”
The culmination of Dudamel’s unique look at Ives and Dvořák shows the individualistic American expanding his harmonic and rhythmic language even further in the stunningly complex Fourth Symphony. Dvořák’s final symphony was composed from Native-American and African-American source materials, from which he drew unforgettable melodies and dramatic harmonies that gelled into his most popular creation.
