Dvorák's three-year sojourn in America in the 1880s drew forth one of the world's most popular symphonies, From the New World, which was premièred in New York on 15 December 1893. Dvorák's fondness for the Negro music he heard in America was the progenitor of the slow movement, so reminiscent of a spiritual.
