With this special programme José Cura completes his three-year residency with the orchestra.
In the first half José Cura will present his own arrangements of his, and his compatriots’, songs. In the second half, we'll hear the Czech premiere of the only symphony by Mieczysław Karłowicz, a great talent of Polish music, killed by his passion for mountaineering. It may seem unusual to link José Cura and Polish music, but we shouldn’t forget that Argentinean musicians often collaborate with Polish orchestras. The symphony’s subtitle Rebirth promises that, for the FOK, this is not going to be the last meeting.
The concert is being held under the auspices of the Embassy of the Argentine Republic to the Czech Republic.
