Czech Philharmonic Season Opening Concert

Czech Philharmonic ⬩ Season Opening Concert

The beginning of the season belongs to Antonín Dvořák in part because the beginnings of the Czech Philharmonic are associated with him personally. The orchestra will be playing Dvořák programmes not only at the Rudolfinum, but also on its tour of Asia. At the opening concert we will be welcoming for the first time the outstanding Augustin Hadelich.

The third opening concert takes place as a prologue to the Talichův Beroun 2023 festival.

“Dvořák was himself a violist, so it is no surprise that the inner voices in his scores are always extremely important. In many sections of the violin concerto (like the beautiful transition from the first to the second movement), the violin is not soaring high above the orchestral texture, but is right in the middle of it — the middle voice of a chorale, surrounded by the sounds of horns and wind instruments. This means that soloist, conductor and wind players must breathe and phrase together, and listen and react to each other constantly. This is both the work’s greatest challenge and also what makes it special!”
