The festival’s opening concert promises to be a unique experience. As part of the festival’s main programming series, the Dvořák Collection, there will be a performance of a work by two creators – the greatest icons of the Czech cultural tradition Antonín Dvořák and Karel Jaromír Erben. The cantata for soloists, mixed choir, and orchestra titled The Spectre’s Bride is an ideal synthesis of Erben’s stirring text and of the composer’s inexhaustible musical invention. Performing one of Antonín Dvořák’s greatest works for solo voices, choir, and orchestra will be the Czech Philharmonic with the conductor Jakub Hrůša and the Czech Philharmonic Choir of Brno together with the superb soloists Kateřina Kněžíková, Richard Samek, and Svatopluk Sem.
