Symphony No. 9 in E minor (‘From the New World’), , Op. 95

„I have always loved locomotives passionately. For me they are living creatures and I love them as others love women or horses” – said Arthur Honegger about his great passion, second only to music. The creation of the Pacific 231 (1923) symphonic poem is due to his journey to the innocence of a composer’s beginnings: as a twenty year old he would make a weekly trip from Le Havre to the Paris Conservatory.

Journeys and wandering were also predominant in the life and musical poetics of Gustav Mahler. The Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen (Songs of a Wayfarer) (1883–1885) are firmly set in an autobiographical context: the composer wrote them to his own texts, influenced by an unrequited love he felt for the singer Johanna Richter. The varied harmonies and strong expression in the lieder reflect a transformation in the main protagonist: from hopes ending in disappointment, through torment and pain, to the healing brought by the soothing force of Nature.

Antonín Dvořák sailed to New York invited by Jeannette Meyer Thurber, an aficionado of artistic talent and founder (in 1885) of the National Conservatory of Music of America. Dvořák served as chair of the college from 1892 to 1895. The Symphony No. 9 in E minor, "From the New World" (1893)has been extremely successful thanks to a unique combination of American and Slavic elements.
