Subscription Series I • Six evening concerts


Ivan Klánský, after a rather long absence, has accepted an invitation to the most prestigious chamber music series. His recital will include Frederic Chopin, of course, besides other composers. The programming of the series will be enlivened by the confrontation of international artists with Czech performers.

Czech Chamber Music Society

For example, the young Calidore Quartet (USA) will appear with the well-known Czech pianist Ivo Kahánek to pay joint respects to César Franck, celebrating his 200th birthday with his Piano Quintet. The Dvořák Piano Quartet is devoting its programme to the music of Robert Schumann, and the concert will also feature the world premiere of a work by Jiří Teml. Concertmaster Jan Fišer has chosen works by Mozart and Schubert for a Czech Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra concert including Mozart’s Haffner Serenade and Schubert’s Fifth Symphony. Bringing the series to its conclusion is the Afflatus Quintet, perhaps today’s best-known Czech wind ensemble.
