Classical music

As Dvořák’s secretary was about to take his latest symphony to the conductor, the composer stopped him, grabbed the score, and scrawled the unforgettable subtitle From the New World. It sounds like a postcard home, and it is: a Czech composer reacting to the boundless vitality of nineteenth-century America.

The concert begins with a turbulent piece by Korngold, who, unbelievably, was just 14 when he composed it. Another brilliant young musician, New Zealand-born violinist Geneva Lewis, makes her Australasian debut with Barber’s autumnal concerto.
