The Symphony No. 9 in E Minor, popularly known as the “The New World Symphony”, was composed in 1893 during Dvorak’s 1892 to 1895 visit to the United States. It is by far his most popular symphony, and one of the most popular in the modern repertoire. The third movement, Scherzo, is fast and lively. This rhythmic movement is written in the traditional scherzo form. A contrasting trio (“Poco sostenuto”), recalls Dvorak's very strong Czech-Bohemian folk influences. Native American music was also an influence on this movement. Dvořák wrote that it was “suggested by the scene at the feast in Hiawatha where the Indians dance“, referring to Longfellow's 1855 epic poem “The Song of Hiawatha.” This arrangement of the third movement for flute orchestra works well with the light and bouncy character of the flute.
