Today In Music History

December 16, 1893 Antonin Dvorak premiered his "New World SYmphony" at New York's Carnegie Hall. It was his tribute to America.
I love Dvorak and the 2nd moveemnt is my favorite part of this symphony. There is no YouTube of it's premiere in New York, so I chose this version by the Dublin Philharmonic.
I find the 2nd movement very haunting. It reminds me of the ocean during a storm, much like today.
