Recitals • Four Sunday afternoon concerts


Recital Series R has been in existence for just two seasons, but it is already an essential part of the programming of the Czech Chamber Music Society, and it continues to attract a new audience. Again this year it offers four concerts given by the world’s greatest artists who are definitely worthy of our attention.

The tenor Ian Bostridge will appear in the role of our guide for Schubert’s Winterreise. Then for another vocal recital, the young countertenor Jakub Josef Orlinski is coming to Prague for the first time. Listeners will certainly appreciate piano virtuosity at the highest level as demonstrated by the Czech pianist Lukáš Vondráček. Unquestionably, another great artist gracing this year’s recital series will be the violinist Leonidas Kavakos.
