It is no coincidence that the Czech Philharmonic will be performing a work by Antonín Dvořák. 2014 marks the 110th anniversary of this Czech master, and it was under the composer’s baton that the Czech Philharmonic gave its first public performance, under the current name, in 1896.
One of the pillars of Czech musical culture, the orchestra’s history boasts fruitful collaborations with some of the world’s most celebrated conductors, among others Talich, Kubelík, Ančerl and Neumann, as well as a number of composers and outstanding musicians.
Two ambassadors of the Russian and Czech traditions in a programme of Rachmaninov and Dvořák. The pianism of Nikolai Lugansky, also referred to as "the Russian prince of piano", can be best experienced through an interpretation of Rachmaninov, and the Czech tradition can be rendered at its most authentic by the Czech Philharmonic.
Conductor: Jiří Bělohlávek
Soloist: Nikolai Lugansky, piano
Programme: Sergei Rachmaninoff, Antonín Dvořák
