There are many violin concertos. And perhaps even more piano concertos. But oboe concertos? Certainly not as many and never enough. And yet how intoxicating is the colour of the oboe? Reed cane could not dream of more purposeful existence. And now something new is emerging. The other day the oboist Vilém Veverka, composer Jiří Gemrot and conductor Tomáš Netopil got together and a new concerto sprang up; its world premiere will be given by the FOK orchestra who has it in their genes to open new horizons. On top of it, it is going to be a dance evening thanks to Ravel, and thanks to Berlioz for fellow musicians an autobiographical evening, as the Symphonie fantastique has a subtitle An Episode in the Life of an Artist.
