Subscription Series A

The Subscription Series A will please all admirers of music written in the first half of the 20th century – many of the featured pieces were composed at the beginning or the end of this period. World premières of compositions by Bryce Dessner, Julian Anderson, and Slavomír Hořínka and Mozart’s instrumental concerto balance the series’ dramaturgy. Chief Conductor Semyon Bychkov prepared three concerts and the remaining three are in the hands of Principal Guest Conductor Jakub Hrůša, French conducting star Alain Altinoglu, and Keith Lockhart, one of Rudolfinum audience’s favourites. Violinists Karen Gomyo, Jiří Vodička, and Josef Špaček will play solo parts in Shostakovich, Ravel, and Martinů. Piano stars of Series A come from the north: Icelandian Víkingur Ólafsson and Canadian Marc-André Hamelin. French organist Thierry Escaich will play the “organ” Symphony No. 3 by Saint-Saëns.
