The Dvořák Symphony No. 9 is one of my favourite pieces of music, and has been since the 4th movement was used as the AnimeCon 1991 opening .
I recognised it as soon as I heard it, but couldn’t pin down the exact movement that was used in Shin Sekai Yori. It is one of the quieter movements in the Dvořák, so I’m only mildly surprised that none of the other Shin Sekai Yori reviews that I’ve seen thus far have mentioned it.
If anyone does want to take a stab at pinning it down, here’s a reference copy on YouTube to compare to the episode on CrunchyRoll. Enjoy.
 Which I wrote about in the Thirty Days of Anime posts, and which
still doesn’t appear to be is finally on youtube. 🙂
