Make America Great. Dvorak was there long before Trump, when the US was Great.

The RSNO, last night, under conductor Gilbert Varga,  gave a magnificent rendering of Dvorak’s New Word Symphony No 6 at the Usher Hall.
Paul Philbert on drums and the signature tune with Amy McKean on cor anglaise.

I wonder if Trump has ever spent time to listen to the symphony. Dvorak’s music conveys an entirely different vison of the US, than Trump would understand.
