Made possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities
Friday, April 6, 2012, 7:30 pm
The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra presents a fascinating look into the American influences on the classical composer Antonín Dvorák, including a mini-lecture by Tim Barringer, Yale University, exploring the notion that Dvorák furnishes the nearest musical equivalent to the iconic American paintings of Frederic Church and Albert Bierstadt; a visual interpretation of Dvorák’s New World Symphony by Joseph Horowitz (author and creator of the New York Philharmonic’s “Inside the Music” series); and performances of Dvorák’s “American” String Quartet and the Larghetto from his Violin Sonatina by members of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra.
