Sowerby Comes Autumn Time
Haydn Hunting Chorus from The Seasons
Dvorák Te Deum
Dvorák Symphony No. 9 ("From the New World")
In 1892, the Czech composer Antonín Dvorák arrived in New York to lead the National Conservatory of Music in America, bearing with him the score for his majestic Te Deum for chorus, soloists and orchestra, which he conducted at a concert celebrating Columbus Day. During his stay in the United States, Dvorák composed his "New World" Symphony, which has rightfully gone on to become one of his most acclaimed works. In America, we think of autumn as a time for celebration--reflected in the delightful overture Comes Autumn Time by Chicago composer and organist Leo Sowerby, as well as the "Hunting Chorus" from Haydn's The Seasons.
