Dvořák’s 'New World' Symphony

Wednesday 1 May 2024, 7.30pm
Cadogan Hall

Suk Scherzo Fantastique
Henri Tomasi Trombone Concerto
Dvořák Symphony No.9, ‘From the New World’

Domingo Hindoyan Conductor
Matthew Gee Trombone

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Much-loved classics and tuneful discoveries from Domingo Hindoyan and Principal Trombone Matt Gee. 

Don’t mention the Hovis ad (if you can even remember it), because – with its great tunes, grand emotions and sweeping drama – Dvořák’s Symphony No.9, ‘From the New World’ was a favourite with audiences all over the world long before TV even existed. Dvořák was inspired by America, but he never lost his Czech accent and Domingo Hindoyan, a conductor who is making waves, will bring out all the nostalgia (and joy) in the composer’s much-loved melodies.

First, though, take a whirl through old Bohemia in the lovely Scherzo Fantastique by Dvořák’s son-in-law Suk, and take a walk on the wild side with Tomasi’s swinging Trombone Concerto – a larger-than-life showcase for one of the RPO’s very own stars, trombonist Matt Gee.


Large print versions and digital formats of the programme for this concert are available on request for customers with accessibility requirements. Please email your request to Doran Crowhurst crowhurstd@rpo.co.uk at least one full week before the performance.
