“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.
