Dvořák Prague 2019: Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della Rai
Rudolfinum, Alšovo nábřeží 79/12, Praha 1 - Staré Město, 110 00

It would be very difficult to decide whether the biggest attraction to the opening concert of this year’s Dvořák Prague Festival is the programming or the performers. Dvořák’s famous Cello Concerto and his popular Eighth Symphony are undoubtedly not only some of his greatest music, but also some of the finest music of late-nineteenth-century Europe in general. No less exceptional are the artists who will be communicating the music to us: the RAI National Symphony Orchestra from Italy, an ensemble with an outstanding reputation, will be conducted by Christoph Eschenbach, a true celebrity among conductors, and introducing himself in the Cello Concerto will be a very sought-after musician of the younger generation, Kian Soltani. The combination of Dvořák’s ravishing music with masterful performances will definitely be the right way to start off this year’s festival.
