ABOUT THE CONCERT

Remarkable evenings in the magical Lobkowicz Palace attract guests to special gatherings with the curators of the Lobkowicz Collections and to a fascinating discussion about subjects connecting both history and the present. The guests have a unique opportunity to meet the PKF – Prague Philharmonia’s artists and management. Refreshments provided by the head chef of the Lobkowicz Palace and a glass of wine make a welcoming and friendly atmosphere that pervades the whole evening.

“My greatest motivation is that I profoundly love what I’m doing.”

“King of his instrument” is the title Stefan Dohr has been given by the New York Chronicle. Principal horn of the Berlin Philharmonic who has performed as soloist under the baton of Daniel Barenboim, Claudio Abbado and Christian Thielemann, he is undoubtedly the most proficient candidate to show off the beauty of this instrument. He collaborates on chamber projects with a number of stellar performers, such as Ian Bostridge or Maurizio Pollini. Dohr also found admirers among composers. Toshio Hosohawa wrote the song Moment of Blossoming for him, which Dohr performed with the Berlin Philharmonic and Sir Simon Rattle, and the Wofgang Rihm´s concert he premiered at the Lucerne Festival in 2014.

Music across three centuries:  even so we could label the third concert of this year Lobkowicz Series We will begin chronologically in the 18th century and will hear Mozart’s Concerto for Horn No. 3, a piece featuring characteristic elegance and lightness of classicism. In the second half of 19th century we will find Janáček’s Idyll, with its calm, romantic mood, which the composer may have acquired during his stay in Germany, where this piece was created. The last century will be represented by one of the greatest composers of our time, Arvo Pärt. His Summa for String Orchestra he describes as a very strict and enigmatic work, representing the culmination of his work on the specific formal structure of it.
