Some of the most beautiful melodies ever written for wind instruments were composed by Dvořák, and several appear in his 9th Symphony, known as the ‘New World’. This slow and atmospheric tune has been arranged for many different instruments. A brass band version accompanied one of the most famous British television advertisements of all time, featuring Hovis bread and a boy on a bike.
