music to shake the world
If there's an earthquake down under, will we feel it here in the U.S.? Definitely. Never one for small ambitions, Antonin Dvorak said he wanted his music to "shake the world." Today on PT we'll hear the West Australia Symphony Orchestra performing Dvorak's Seventh Symphony from a concert in Perth, Australia.
