The Met continues its ongoing series exploring the parallels between orchestral music and the visual arts. Conductor and music historian Leon Botstein draws connections between French artist Eugène Delacroix’s painting of a Natchez family forced to flee after the massacre of their tribe and American composer Ferruccio Busoni’s Indian Fantasy (1913–14), which is based on Indigenous melodies and rhythms, and the second movement of Antonín Dvořák's New World Symphony (1893), which was inspired by Longfellow's much-critiqued poem “The Song of Hiawatha.” The program will be followed by a Q&A.
