A magical evocation of a Midwest farmland sunrise opens Dvorák’s “American” quintet, a work inspired by the plains of Spillville, Iowa, and the music of Native and African-Americans. This deeply moving work opened a vast musical horizon in the New World, pointing American composers in search of a voice to their own native musical heritage. Harry Burleigh, an African-American music student at New York’s National Conservatory, sang spirituals for Dvorák. The iconic Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein both drew on Dvorák’s game-changing vision to create their own American masterworks. Click here for more info (Opens in a new window)
