Some beauty and peace

I remember first listening to Dvorak's Ninth Symphony ("New World Symphony") in the 10th grade. I had tears in my eyes during the second movement, and it's remained one of my favorite orchestral works.

Someone emailed me these Youtube videos the other day, of the Dublin Philharmonic playing the 2nd Movement, and I thought I'd share them here (though I wish the movement didn't have to be divided up between two videos).

Part One:


Part Two:

Glorious, glorious! Thanks for these. I keep meaning to post more music links, but when I do I get very few direct responses.

I love that even in 10th grade you were able to be so moved.

Isn't it wonderful that the music that moved you then moves you now. New World Symphony is a beautiful piece of music.
