Symphony "From the New World" – 2. Largo

Antonín Dvořák

Did you know Dvořák composed the famous “New World Symphony” while he was staying in America? This may be a reason why it came to occupy such an important place in American culture and music. This second movement, “Largo”, even became a spiritual of its own with added lyrics called “Goin’ Home”. It was performed at memorial events for presidents and even inspired jazz composers and musicians, from saxophonist Albert Ayler to pianist Art Tatum, who made the "Largo" swing in 1949.
