The universal popularity of Dvořák’s “New World” Symphony lies in the perfection of its expressive melodies, feeling immediately familiar and stirring a sense of nostalgia. Similarly, Bartók’s Music for Strings, Percussion, and Celesta is so masterfully constructed that every note seems inevitable, start to finish.
