– Antonín Dvořák: Festival Song, Op. 113, B. 202
– Antonín Dvořák: Concerto for Violoncello and Orchestra in B minor, Op. 104, B. 191
– Johannes Brahms: Symphony No. 4 in E minor, Op. 98
The programme of this concert by the Czech Philharmonic with its chief conductor Jiří Bělohlávek promises a real treat, symbolically combining masterpieces by long-term friends Antonín Dvořák and Johannes Brahms. Besides Dvořák’s Festival Song for chorus and orchestra we’ll hear his Cello Concerto in B minor, in which this year the solo part will be taken by one of the most sought-after cellists in the world, Jean-Guihen Queyras.
