SMETANA The Bartered Bride Overture

TCHAIKOVSKY Violin Concerto

DVORÁK Symphony No.7

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and renowned Czech conductor Libor Pešek perform a programme including two masterpieces from the Czech repertoire, beginning with Smetana’s sparkling overture to his hugely popular comic opera The Bartered Bride. Dvorák’s Seventh Symphony is a powerful and tragic work, following in the symphonic tradition of Beethoven and Brahms, written for the Philharmonic Society of London. Completing the programme is the violin concerto by Tchaikovsky. This is one of the composer’s finest works, both lyrical and brilliant by turns. Although initially written off as unplayable, it is now one of the best-loved concertos in the violin repertoire.

This concert forms part of the Mole Valley Arts Alive Festival.
