Janáček Taras Bulba
Korngold Violin Concerto
Dvořák Symphony No. 9, ‘From the New World’
Dennis Russell Davies conductor
Alexander Sitkovetsky violin*
Brno Philharmonic Orchestra
(*please note change to previously advertised soloist)
The Czech city of Brno has a tremendous musical heritage as both Janáček and Korngold were born and raised there. We’re therefore delighted to welcome the Brno Philharmonic with a performance that includes Taras Bulba by Janáček, who was the founder of the Orchestra.
Acclaimed violinist Alexander Sitkovetsky performs Korngold’s Violin Concerto, and the concert concludes with Dvořak’s ever-popular ‘New World’ Symphony.
‘Giving the music an impassioned and highly energised violin solo was renowned soloist Alexander Sitkovetsky. To say his performance was electric would be an understatement and as he jumped high in the air with his energetic plucking he managed to bring every tiny nuance from this highly emotive piece of writing.’ (performing Britten’s Violin Concerto with Hallé Orchestra/RNCM & Sir Mark Elder, Manchester Salon)
