It's pronounced "Duh-VOR-zhak".

I didn't play through the entirety of this elucidation of Dvorak's "New World" Symphony (compelte with animation!), since I know the work very well, but I like to see this kind of thing. While I'm not sold on the practice of hooking up classical music to specific imagery in "Mickey Mousing" style, I do think that this general kind of thing can help to demystify classical music, which at times seems to me to be about as accessible as nuclear physics.
