Information about the programme

“It’s wonderful to play Martinů. He’s a composer who immediately appeals to everyone, musicians and audiences alike. The moment his music appears on a programme, it’s a success.” Today hardly anyone is a more qualified Martinů conductor than Jakub Hrůša. The two works he’s bringing to Munich display two different aspects of this Czech composer: the propulsive rhythms of his native folk music that pervade the First Symphony (1942), and the almost impressionist mysticism of Les fresques de Piero della Francesca (1955). The latter piece, composed under the influence of Piero’s fresco series The Legend of the True Cross in San Francesco, Arezzo, received its world première at the Salzburg Festival under Rafael Kubelík, later to become the BRSO’s principal conductor. Our other guest is no less acclaimed than Maestro Hrůša: the Munich-based Georgian violinist Lisa Batiashvili, featured this time in the magnificent Sibelius concerto.


BR-KLASSIK will broadcast the concert on Friday live on the radio, and as a video livestream here on the concert page.
