In search of the seeds of Dvořák’s ‘American’ music

In 1891 Antonín Dvořák is made an offer he can’t refuse. In New York he will be allowed to train the burgeoning musical talents of the New World and he will have carte blanche to shape an American style of music. Did you know that we can thank Dvořák's Ninth Symphony and George Gershwin’s jazzy music to Negro spirituals like Swing low, sweet chariot? With the help of bass Piet Vansichen, pianist, musicologist and philosopher Waldo Geuns tells us all about it.
