Subscription Series II • Six evening concerts


During the last two seasons, we have become accustomed to a prominent figure serving as the artistic face of one series. That will be the case again this year, when the cellist of the Pavel Haas Quartet Peter Jarůšek will take part in planning the programme for Series II.

Czech Chamber Music Society

He has invited a number of renowned Czech and foreign artists to collaborate with him—the pianist Boris Giltburg, the violinist Dalibor Karvay, the violist Nils Mönkenmayer, and members of the Pavel Haas Quartet—and they will be appearing with him at three concerts. Their names are truly an attraction for concertgoers. Also worthy of note are plans for the last concert in Europe to be given by the Emerson Quartet before ceasing its activities. This year, the Czech Philharmonic Winds with the conductor Ondřej Vrabec will be preparing an unusual programme for Dvořák Hall with music for the large forces of a concert band.
