Enjoy performance of Dvořák Prague festival “all-star team”

The Chamber Series at this year’s Dvořák Prague Festival will conclude with a special combination that could form the basis of a festival “all-star team”. Joining with the Czech Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra as soloists are the violinist Josef Špaček, the cellist Tomáš Jamník, and naturally the Chamber Series curator, the pianist Lukáš Vondráček. Josef Špaček will also provide the artistic direction for this musical society. The combined forces will perform the Concertino for Piano Trio and String Orchestra by Bohuslav Martinů – in it, the composer reveals himself to be a proponent of the inter-war avant-garde with a true grasp of Parisian modernism and its elegant lightness, hedonism, and sophistication. Surrounding the Concertino are two serenades for string orchestra – the first by Josef Suk and the last by Antonín Dvořák. In terms of the music itself, in both pieces there is more of Bohemia than Paris, where Martinů composed his Concertino, but their sunny atmosphere lets them go wonderfully together with Martinů’s work.

Program: 

  • Josef Suk: Serenade for String Orchestra in E flat major, Op. 6
  • Bohuslav Martinů: Concertino for Piano Trio and String Orchestra, H. 232
  • Antonín Dvořák: Serenade for String Orchestra in E major, Op. 22, B. 52

Performing:
