Dvorak's New World Symphony.
Incidentally what is the music that used to come on the Hovis bread ad's.?
Yes - in particular the 2nd movement, Largo. The famous theme is played initially on the cor anglais before being taken up by other instruments. http://www.youtube.c...h?v=-ENf4VEhI40
Dvorak wrote this in 1893 whilst Director of the National Conservatory in New York. I am sure its heartaching melodies are an indication of the composer's homesickness and longing for his native Bohemia (now the Czech Republic), to which he returned two years later.
If you are interested in seeing the dots, the orchestral score of the second movement is here:http://erato.uvt.nl/..._SNKLHU_3_9.pdf
The cor anglais ('corno inglese') solo starts at bar 7. Remember that the cor anglais is a transposing instrument pitched in F, so the written notes (in the key of A-flat major) will actually sound a fifth lower in D-flat major).
