Why is America the so called 'New World'? And how did the USA actually come into being? And what does a composer named Dvorák have to do with it? On his trip to America Timmy learns about pirates, meets the music and culture of the Native Americans and is fascinated how a completely new American music developed from the classical music of the whites and the rhythmic music of the blacks. Georg Friedrich Haas grew up in Tschagguns (Vorarlberg) and studied composition with Gösta Neuwirth and Iván Erőd and piano with Doris Wolf at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz, Austria. Since 1978, he has been teaching at the Hochschule as an instructor, and since 1989 as an associate professor in counterpoint, contemporary composition techniques, analysis, and introduction to microtonal music. Haas is a founding member of the Graz composers' collective Die andere Seite. He composes in a cottage in Fischbach, Styria.
