Antonín Dvořák wrote his Evening songs for voice and piano. At first, Magdalena Kožená performed them that way, but she later asked the Czech composer Jiří Gemrot to orchestrate them. The result is the selection to be heard on these subscription concerts along with two more songs from Dvořák’s Op. 2. Jiří Gemrot also orchestrated Gideon Klein’s Lullaby, while Hans Krása’s Four Orchestral Songs are heard in their original instrumentation. “I’m very curious about what the songs will sound like and how much they will please the public,” say Magdalena Kožená.
