Dvorak: II.Largo (extract) Symphony No. 9 (New World) Op.95 - brass quintet

he Largo (Mvt.2) from the New World Symphony is probably Dvorak's best known melody.


The theme from the Largo was adapted into the spiritual-like song "Goin' Home" (also k/a “Going Home”) (often mistakenly considered a folk song or traditional spiritual) by Dvořák's pupil William Arms Fisher, who wrote the lyrics in 1922.


This arrangement, for brass quintet is of the main theme, but NOT the middle section)

It is in Db major, the same as the original.

This arrangement features the horn, playing the original cor anglais solo, in the correct key.
