Written in 1893 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Columbus’s discovery of America, From the New World explodes with American folk-inspired rhythms and melodies. However, Dvořák does not completely shun the infectious folk music of his native Bohemia, the influence of which can be heard throughout the symphony.
