Hop on the imaginary train from Vienna to Warsaw with Collegium 1704 

J. V. H. Voříšek, a native of Bohemia, spent most of his life in Vienna, where he worked his way up to the position of organist to the imperial court, and his music was a departure point for leading Romantic composers. It is in his piano music that we first encounter the term “impromptu”, a genre later closely associated with Franz Schubert and Frédéric Chopin. Appearing with Collegium 1704 will be the new winner of the prestigious Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw, which focuses on historical instruments this year. On 16 October 2023, the orchestra will announce the name of the soloist and which Chopin concerto will be played.

Program: 

  • J. V. H. Voříšek
    Symphony in D Major, Op. 23
