For the first programme of Series C, chief conductor Semyon Bychkov has invited the youthful Swedish violinist Johan Dalene, whose appearance at the Rudolfinum will be his Prague debut and first collaboration with the Czech Philharmonic. The Prague Symphony by the German composer Detlev Glanert will receive its world premiere.
Violin Concerto in D minor, Op. 47 (31')
— Intermission —
Prague Symphony. Lyric Fragments after Franz Kafka (Symphony No. 4) (world premiere) (45')
The Prague Symphony was commissioned by the Czech Philharmonic through Semyon Bychkov and its performance will be a great event.It had been planned for March 2021, but that was not possible, so the work was first heard elsewhere. It was commissioned by Semyon Bychkov and the Czech Philharmonic, and the performance will be a major event. Maestro Bychkov is equally excited about the soloist for the Sibelius concerto: “I think the evening’s soloist Johan Dalene is an exceptionally talented violinist, and I am greatly looking forward to his performance of Sibelius’s Violin Concerto.”
