Dvořák Prague 2019: Czech Philharmonic
Rudolfinum, Alšovo nábřeží 79/12, Praha 1 - Staré Město, 110 00
- Sat 21. 9. 2019 20.00
This year’s festival is focusing on the music of Dvořák’s friend and artistic ally Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. One high point will be a concert featuring two of the composer’s greatest works. Presenting himself in the Violin Concerto in D Major will be another member of the wonderful Capuçon “clan” of musicians, the violinist Renaud Capuçon, whose honours include decoration by the French state as a Chevalier de la Légion d’honneur for his contribution to culture. The Czech Philharmonic and its chief conductor Semyon Bychkov will then bring the concert to a climax with one of the greatest symphonic works of all times, Tchaikovsky’s emotionally stirring Pathétique Symphony.
