Music by contemporaries and friends, A. Dvořák and P. I. Tchaikovsky, played by the Czech Philharmonic in Rudolfinum
Tchaikovsky and Dvořák were contemporaries, and although separated by great distance, also good friends. Tchaikovsky’s only Violin Concerto alongside Dvořák’s last and most famous symphony promise a scintillating programme, highlighted by the spontaneous, exciting interpretations of concertmaster Jiří Vodička and conductor Petr Altrichter.
