Subscription Series A • Six evening concerts


In Subscription Series A you will hear a wide variety of compositions—from Telemann to Jaroslav Krček. Besides Mahler and Shostakovich, there will also be less frequently heard works by composers like Gideon Klein and Hans Krása. All of this will be performed by Semyon Bychkov, Simon Rattle, Jakub Hrůša, or Giovanni Antonini.

Subscription Series A features stellar artists. At the forefront is the chief conductor Semyon Bychkov, who will present one programme of Russian music and one of Mahler—the latter is part of a complete cycle of performances of Mahler’s symphonies. The artists-in-residence Simon Rattle and Magdalena Kožená and the chief guest conductor Jakub Hrůša will be presenting original Czech repertoire. The other two concerts will focus on older music — Giovanni Antonini is returning to Prague with a programme of Mozart and Baroque music, half of which he will be performing with the Czech Student Philharmonic. The season’s debutant Maxim Emelyanychev will appear in a programme of music of the Classical and early Romantic periods. All of the soloists are first class: we can look forward to hearing Behzod Abduraimov, Leonidas Kavakos, and Tom Borrow.
