Dvořák Hall will be honoured by one of the greatest symphonies of all time

Without a doubt, one of the eagerly awaited events of this year’s Dvořák Prague Festival is the concert of the Israel Philharmonic. Long regarded as one of the world’s best orchestras, it will be appearing under the baton of its artistic-director-for-life and chief conductor, the living conducting legend Zubin Mehta, who has been with the orchestra for an incredible fifty years.

The program they have chosen for their Prague concert can also be described as exceptionally fitting: Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 3, perhaps the most gigantic work of the standard symphonic repertoire.

Also participating in the performance of this tremendous musical colossus will be the Japanese mezzo-soprano Mihoko Fujimura and two first-class vocal ensembles − the Prague Philharmonic Choir and the Prague Philharmonic Children’s Choir.

Mahler’s ingenious score in the hands of performers of the highest calibre promises to be a powerful listening experience.
