PRAGUE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Jac van STEEN | conductor
Early morning on May 29, 2016 we received an SMS from Jac van Steen: ‘Your Lukáš has won, my congratulations to the entire Czech Republic!’ This was, of course, about the historic triumph of the Czech Pianist Lukáš Vondráček at the legendary Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels, where he confirmed his place among the world super-class. He played Rachmaninov’s Third Piano Concerto in such an incredible way that there was no other repertoire option for concerts with the principal guest conductor. Following the recital in the World Piano Series January 2017, we know there is much to look forward to. Steen added a piece of his own choice: Prokofiev’s sparkling music for the ballet Cinderella.
The concert is being held under the auspices of Ambassy of the Netherlands in the Czech Republic.
