Alexander Zemlinsky: Hunting Piece

Hans Krása: Dance for String Trio

Leone Sinigaglia: Romance

David Popper: Hungarian Rhapsody, Op. 68

Lev Kogan: Hasidic Melodies

Gustav Mahler: The Youth’s Magic Horn—selection from the song cycle

This concert joins pieces from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries by composers of Jewish ethnicity, mostly having strong connections with Prague and reflecting also the Czech and German elements of this multicultural environment. Melancholy and the sense of a nation’s destiny, a distinctive personal wit, the survival of these pieces despite attempts at cultural extermination, and the song form of Mahler’s collection will be rendered by an instrumental ensemble of the Schoenbergian type aiming to show this music not only in a new light but in a fresh instrumentation. The Mahler songs will sound in an arrangement by Tomáš Ille and Radek Baborák.
