Czech Chamber Music Society • Lada Bočková

The two most famous Czech Romantic composers are admired for, among other things, works that enchant listeners with the sound of the human voice. Curiously, both Smetana and Dvořák wrote musical settings of poems from the collection Evening Songs by Vítězslav Hálek. Soprano Lada Bočková will sing the two cycles along with selected opera arias.
