Subscription Series C

Subscription Series C opens with a unique concert for the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven. Almost on the exact date of this event, legendary Austrian musician Rudolf Buchbinder will play and conduct three of the composer’s piano concertos. The second concert of the series will present the world première of a work by Czech composer Miloš Orson Štědroň for two trombones – outstanding trombonists of the Czech Philharmonic will play the solo parts. Under the baton of David Robertson, Ivo Kahánek will play Ravel’s Piano Concerto for the Left Hand, and that programme will also feature Gershwin’s famous tone poem American in Paris. Within the third programme, Tomáš Netopil will present two less well known composers who initially had a Brno connection and then worked abroad – Jan Novák and Erich Wolfgang Korngold. Czech Philharmonic concertmaster Jiří Vodička will perform Korngold’s Violin Concerto. The highpoint of the programme will be Franck’s Symphony in D Minor. Leading the fourth programme of Series C will be Chief Conductor of the Czech Philharmonic Semyon Bychkov. Soprano Chen Reiss and bass Boris Prýgl will appear in Johannes Brahms’s monumental German Requiem.
