Zuill Bailey, cello
Piotr Gajewski, conductor
Among Dvor?aks most beloved works are two he wrote while in America: the Cello Concerto and Symphony No. 9, popularly known as the New World Symphony. The concerto allows Zuill Bailey, one of the pre-eminent cellists of his generation, to display his compelling artistry and technical expertise. Dvor?ak maintained that
he wrote Symphony No. 9 “in the spirit” of Native American music, but it also combines many
multinational sources, including the folk music of the composer’s native Bohemia.
