Description

ABOUT THE CONCERT

This year, the Dvořák Prague Festival will open with a flourish – Dvořák’s Cello Concerto and New World Symphony combined with the sound of Europe’s most illustrious opera house, whose fame rivals perhaps only that of the New York’s Metropolitan Opera. Milan’s La Scala is a legendary stage, one that has borne witness to the world premieres of great operas by Giuseppe Verdi and Giacomo Puccini. Performing there has been the wish of many of the greatest singers of the last two centuries. La Scala also owes its quality to its outstanding orchestra, Filarmonica della Scala. Its excellence has been nurtured by demanding principal conductors, in recent years including Riccardo Muti, Daniel Barenboim, and Riccardo Chailly. Columbian conductor Andrés Orozco-Estrada is not only a superb musician, but also a Dvořák specialist – he has already recorded five of the composer’s nine symphonies on CD. The German cellist Daniel Müller Schott is renowned for his combination of lyricism and the sublime, for which Dvořák’s Cello Concerto offers ideal opportunities.

The opening concert will serve as a reminder that this year’s festival celebrates the 180th anniversary of Antonín Dvořák’s birth.
