Schmidt's Fourth Symphony or Mahler's arias from the famous operas presented by the Czech Philharmonic with Manfred Honeck

Manfred Honeck is a regular guest of the Czech Philharmonic, and he is delivering a Wagner concert with the outstanding baritone Matthias Goerne. Besides an overture and arias from Richard Wagner’s operas, the concert will feature the Fourth Symphony by the composer Franz Schmidt, who experienced playing cello under the baton of Gustav Mahler.

“With the musicians of the Czech Philharmonic, I like not only to perform familiar symphonic works, but also to join with them in revealing works to the Czech public that are still relatively new to them. His Fourth Symphony is undoubtedly a masterpiece. Its immediate, tragic inspiration was the death of Schmidt’s adult daughter. Although the symphony presents interpretive difficulties, it is exceptionally accessible to audiences. I hope you will enjoy our performance of it”, says Honeck.
