When Semyon Bychkov chose the programme for his first subscription concert, he suggested Dvořák’s Seventh Symphony without hesitation, so that from the start of his tenure at the helm of the Czech Philharmonic, he would honour the orchestra’s national tradition. On the other hand, Luciano Berio’s Sinfonia makes a striking contrast: it is a major, groundbreaking work of the twentieth century, and its importance is sometimes compared with Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring.
Sinfonia for 8 voices and orchestra
Symphony No. 7 in D Minor, Op. 70
