Concertgebouw x4: Dvorak "New World"

Tune in Wednesday at 7 PM to hear Dvorak's "New World" Symphony as conducted by Carlo Maria Giulini, Sir Colin Davis, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, and then Mariss Jansons with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam. Dvorak wrote the work in 1893 in the city once known as "New Amsterdam" - New York; the photograph shows him arriving there with his family.
