Dvořák Prague 2019: A. Dvořák - Concertos for Cello
National Gallery Prague - Convent of St Agnes of Bohemia (Národní galerie Praha – klášter sv. Anežky České), Anežská 12, Praha 1 - Staré Město, 110 00

An utterly unique programme with respect to dramaturgy will feature the cellist Jiří Bárta and the pianist Terezie Fialová. On a single evening, both of the cello concertos by Antonín Dvořák will be heard. The works are separated by a full thirty years. We will be hearing the first, seldom played concerto in the composer’s original version with piano accompaniment, while the second work, the well known Cello Concerto in B Minor, will be heard in the version with Dvořák’s own piano reduction. This is a unique opportunity to compare two works in the same genre, one from the beginning of the composer’s artistic career and the other from his maturity.
