The Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium
The Met continues its ongoing series exploring the parallels between
orchestral music and the visual arts. Conductor and music historian Leon
Botstein draws connections between Eugène Delacroix’s painting of a Natchez
family forced to flee after the massacre of their tribe and composer
Ferruccio Busoni’s Indian
Fantasy (1913–14), which is based on Indigenous melodies
and rhythms, and the second movement of Antonín Dvořák's New World Symphony (1893),
which was inspired by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's much-critiqued poem “The
Song of Hiawatha.” The program will be followed by a Q and A.
