PRAGUE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Pietari INKINEN | conductor
In the 2019/2020 season with our chief conductor Pietari Inkinen, we’ll continue to collaborate with the principals of the Berlin Philharmonic orchestra. Following the appearances of First Concertmaster Daishin Kashimoto and Principal Oboe Albrecht Mayer, the Principal Clarinet Wenzel Fuchs has accepted our invitation. He was born in Innsbruck, and before his engagement in Berlin, played in Vienna. Therefore, there can be no other concerto on the program than the one by Mozart, dedicated to another Austrian virtuoso – Anton Stadler, who actually premiered it in Prague in 1791. The rest of the program is about water. The seawater will be rippled by the handwriting of Sibelius and Debussy; the freshwater – to mark the 150th anniversary of the Czech author Karel Jaromír Erben – springs from the infinite fantasy of Dvořák.
The concert is being held under the auspices of H. E. Jukka Pesola, Ambassador of Finland to the Czech Republic.
In cooperation with Das Österreichische Kulturforum Prag.
