Description

ABOUT THE CONCERT

The Dvořák Prague Youth Philharmonic is a new project of the Academy of Classical Music to be hosted by the festival. The orchestra gave its debut at last year’s festival with a frenzied performance of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 (“Choral”). The orchestra, as conceived by the festival’s executive director, Jan Simon, was put together by conductor Tomáš Netopil at his Summer Academy in Kroměříž, and thanks to its association with the Academy of Classical Music, it has become a regular part of the Dvořák Prague Festival. The Dvořák Prague Youth Philharmonic is of enormous importance to the players themselves, as they are able to gain professional experience and get the extra incentive of a festival appearance at the Rudolfinum. The public can look forward to an entirely different kind of experience – they will encounter some of the most talented youth players and their candid, euphoric attitude.

The programme opens with a composition by Lukáš Sommer titled Dvořák Airlines – this is the festival’s first commission of a work by a contemporary composer. The evening will continue with great classics: first, Joseph Haydn’s Cello Concerto No. 1, a work of brilliant invention that is refreshing for audiences and performers alike. The soloist will be Armenian cellist Narek Hakhnazaryan. The programme concludes with the Serenade for Strings by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.
