The introductory programme creates a close link between the 100th anniversary of the establishment of Czechoslovakia and 125th anniversary of the premiere of the symphony From the New World. The music by Czech composer Antonín Dvořák, whose works are some of the most frequently performed around the world, will be performed by a Slovak orchestra which celebrates 50 years of its existence this year. It will give the performance together with Czech conductor Leoš Svárovský, its main guest conductor, and will also perform a composition by the leading modern Slovak composer Ilja Zelenka. And for Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3, the orchestra will be joined by pianist Ivan Klánský, laureate of the Antonín Dvořák Prize for his lifelong musical work.
