Description

ABOUT THE CONCERT

“I need not give an account of myself to anyone – only to my own conscience and to our noble lady music,” the composer Josef Suk once said. His Fantasy in G Minor for violin and orchestra is on the first programme of the Czech Philharmonic at this year’s event. The Dvořák Prague Festival is presenting the music of Dvořák’s son-in-law with growing frequency, and this work for violin and orchestra shows Suk as a dramatic composer of music, full of surprising turns and inner turmoil.

A very rarely played work by Suk’s and Dvořák’s contemporary, Zdeněk Fibich, has not appeared previously on our festival programmes, so we are repaying this debt with a performance of the overture to his opera, The Tempest. This adds yet another piece to the mosaic of Czech music of the latter half of the 19th century and first decade of the 20th. The performance of the Symphony No. 2 in E Minor by Suk’s contemporary, Sergei Rachmaninoff, on the second half of the concert highlights the fact that these two Czech composers deserve to rank as equals among the greatest of history’s musicians. The concert has been entrusted to Tomáš Netopil, a regular guest conductor of the Czech Philharmonic, who is also a welcome guest at the Dvořák Prague Festival. Violinist Christian Tetzlaff, the soloist in Suk’s Fantasy, returns to the Dvořák Prague Festival after having appeared in 2015 with pianist Ivo Kahánek. He is also a laureate of the Concertino Praga competition, which he won at the start of his successful career.
