We will explore the music of European-born composers who travelled to America to compose. For Erich Korngold this was a connection to a blossoming film industry and for Antonin Dvořák it was to develop nationalistic sounds in American composers. On the program are Korngold’s light-hearted Theme and Variations, Felix Mendelssohn’s symbolic Symphony No. 5 and Dvořák’s lyrical Cello Concerto in B minor.
