Red, White, and Black. America’s Czech With Balance! looks at the well-known musician, Antonín Dvořák. Already a success in Europe, Dvorak was invited to New York City where he arrived in 1892. Once in the United States he connects quickly with both the city’s and the nation’s cultural variety. He comes to believe the roots of American music are all its cultures: African American, Native American, Ragtime, Louisiana Bayou, and more. A summer “vysoka” in Spielville, Iowa, confirms his ideas. He soon blends red, white, and black sounds into his symphony sound.
