– Josef Suk: Meditation on the Old Czech Chorale „St. Wenceslas“, Op. 35a
– Antonín Dvořák: Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in A minor, Op. 53, B. 108
– Camille Saint-Saëns: Symphony No. 3 in C Minor, Op. 78, „Organ Symphony“
In the Dvořák Collection programming series, which focuses on the composer’s instrumental concertos this year, a performance of his popular Violin Concerto in A Minor could not be overlooked. It will be heard in a performance by one of today’s most admired violinists, Gil Shaham, whose Dvořák creations are always of the highest calibre – the violinist’s heartfelt playing is an ideal match for the character of the composer’s musical language. His partner will be the Prague Philharmonia with its chief conductor Emmanuel Villaume, who will open the concert with Suk’s Meditation on the Old Czech Chorale “St. Wenceslas”. The highpoint of the evening will be the Organ Symphony, an impressive work by Dvořák’s French contemporary Camille Saint-Saëns.
