Czech Philharmonic Giovanni Antonini

Czech Philharmonic ⬩ Giovanni Antonini

Giovanni Antonini and the Czech Youth Philharmonic —this combination is already familiar from our 127th season. It turned out so well, including from the Czech Philharmonic’s point of view, that plans were made for another concert. The violinist Josef Špaček has been invited to collaborate.


Joseph Haydn
Symphony No. 85 in B flat Major, Hob. I/85 “The Queen”

Antonio Vivaldi
Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 7/11, RV 208 “Grosso Mogul”

Christoph Willibald Gluck
Don Juan, suite from the ballet

Joseph Haydn
Symphony No. 103 in E flat major, Hob. I/103 “Drumroll”


Josef Špaček violin

Giovanni Antonini conductor

Czech Youth Philharmonic 

Czech Philharmonic

The Czech Youth Philharmonic will play Haydn´s Symphony No. 85 and the Violin Concerto by Vivaldi. 

“Baroque music has experienced a great revival in recent years and I am delighted that the Czech Philharmonic has included this programme with Giovanni Antonini, an expert on this period, in its subscription series. It is a tremendous revival not only for me and the orchestra, but also a very beneficial and educational experience for the upcoming generation of young musicians from the Czech Youth Philharmonic who are part of the programme. Vivaldi was a superstar in his lifetime, and his violin concerto Grosso Mogul, which I will be playing, was the rock'n'roll of its time. I look forward to rocking it for you, the dear audience, at the concert!”
