Czech Philharmonic • Season Opening Concert

29 Sep — 30 Sep 2021

The season opens with one of the most iconic 20th century works. Dmitri Shostakovich refused evacuate from Leningrad, surrounded by the German army, and wrote a new symphony, the premiere of which was broadcast on radio during the siege in 1942. Semyon Bychkov has close family ties to the event – his mother lived through the siege in Leningrad.

Tuesday 5 Oct 2021

At a special concert you will hear the first of Gustav Mahler’s great symphonies. The work is sometimes called a “tone poem in symphonic form”, but it is better known by the subtitle Titan, which is a reference to Mahler’s inspiration from a novel by Jean Paul with that title, which is a summation of the heroic ideals of the era.
