"Symphony No.9 in E Minor" is also known as "From the New World", Dvorak was living in the United States at the time of writing this work. He was deeply moved by the rapid economic momentum of the New World and the simple American folk songs and black spiritual songs. This symphony is steady, simple and full of truth, is the "big vulgar" works of the best works. There is no more moving moment in music than a high degree of resonance with each individual's inner emotions. As one of Dvorak's works on the theme of homesickness, its artistic height and breadth of homesickness are undeniable and can comfort, look forward to and warm those who work and study far away.
