PRAGUE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Jan KUČERA | conductor
Ten of the Best is a group of ten top world trumpet players, assembled by the phenomenal German trumpeter, and piccolo trumpet specialist, Otto Sauter. He has invited representatives from Europe, the USA, Japan and Mexico to his ensemble. We, at FOK, are very proud that our own Marek Zvolánek also plays in the group. The Ten have been joined for the Advent tour by a rhythmic ensemble and vocalists, and together they will bring a truly festive atmosphere to the listeners. We’ll hear Bach, Wagner, Rachmaninov, as well as famous hits like ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’ and ‘What a Wonderful World’. Marek Zvolánek arranged ‘The Lord Christ was Born’ (the English version – ‘Be joyful, Earth and starry sky’) specially for Prague and for this group. We’ll wait and see who will get the biggest solo.
The concert is organised in collaboration with UNICEF – United Nations Children’s Fund.
