Conductor Libor Pesek
Violin Chloe Hanslip
Dvořák Symphony No. 5
Bruch Violin Concerto No. 1
Dvořák Symphony No. 7
In its 20th anniversary year, and under inspirational Chief Conductor Libor Pesek, the Czech National Symphony Orchestra delves into Dvořák as our Symphony Project crosses borders.
Inspired by Brahms, written for London, and stirringly patriotic, the turbulent 7th Symphony is the perfect foil to the less well-known 5th – a sunny Bohemian rhapsody in the key of Beethoven’s ‘Pastoral’ Symphony. In between comes the ever-welcome rhapsody of Bruch’s lyrical G minor Concerto, and a soloist whose “passion and technical bravura are palpable and exciting: the fireworks never stop” (The Times).
