Dvorak - New World Symphony (II. Largo)

Sheet music for flute

Alt. Title: Negro Spiritual Melody, Largo from Symphony No. 9 in E minor, From the New World
Info: Second movement of the Symphony No. 9 in E minor, "From the New World", Op. 95, B. 178, popularly known as the New World Symphony. The piece was composed by Antonín Dvořák in 1893 while he was the director of the National Conservatory of Music of America from 1892 to 1895. It is by far his most popular symphony, and one of the most popular of all symphonies. In older literature and recordings, this symphony was often numbered as Symphony No. 5. Neil Armstrong took a recording of the New World Symphony to the Moon during the Apollo 11 mission, the first Moon landing, in 1969. The theme from the Largo was adapted into the spiritual-like song "Goin' Home", often mistakenly considered a folk song or traditional spiritual, by Dvořák's pupil William Arms Fisher, who wrote the lyrics in 1922.
