Largo - New World Symphony Introduction


The Largo is from New World Symphony that was composed by Antonín Dvořák in 1893 while he was the director of the National Conservatory of Music of America from 1892 to 1895. It is by far his most popular symphony, and one of the most popular in the modern repertoire. In older literature and recordings this symphony is often indicated as Symphony No. 5. Neil Armstrong took a recording of the New World Symphony to the Moonduring the Apollo 11 mission, the first Moon landing, in 1969.


The piece has four movements:
1. Adagio, 4/8 – Allegro molto, 2/4, E minor
2. Largo, common time, D-flat major, then later C-sharp minor
3. Scherzo: Molto vivace – Poco sostenuto, 3/4, E minor
4. Allegro con fuoco, common time, E minor, ends in E major


The theme from the Largo was adapted into a spiritual-like song "Goin' Home", by Dvořák's pupil William Arms Fisher, who wrote the lyrics. Dvořák himself may have modelled the tune on the spirituals written by composer Harry Burleigh, who he met during his sojourn in America.
