Popularly known as the 'New World Symphony', this work was composed by Antonín Dvořák in 1893 during his visit to the United States from 1892 to 1895. It is by far his most popular symphony, and one of the most popular in the modern repertoire.
It is generally considered that, like other Dvořák pieces, this work has more in common with folk music of his native Bohemia than with that of the United States. Leonard Bernstein averred that the work was truly multinational in its foundations.
It never fails to remind me of the beautiful music and lovely folk tunes of my native Slovakia.
