Violin Concerto Op. 14
Symphony No. 9 in E minor Op. 95 “From the New World”
Linus ROTH | violin
PRAGUE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Case SCAGLIONE | conductor
Although his name looks Italian, he hails from Port Arthur, Texas. Although he is American, he has been successfully leading the top French Orchestre national d'Île-de-France for several years, with a residency at the famous Philharmonie de Paris. And finally: although he is an excellent conductor with inspiring energy, this will be his first time in Prague. Likewise for the German specialist in American music, the violinist Linus Roth, playing the Stradivarius "Dancla". The resulting programme mirrors and underlines all this. Just like the commencing Year of Czech Music, the year of Smetana, Janáček and Dvořák.
