The Power of Czech Music

LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN – Concerto for piano and orchestra No. 4 in G major, Op. 58

In collaboration with the Leoš Janáček International Music Festival, the Lithuanian National Philharmonic Society presents an impressive concert of Czech music. Tonight’s performing forces include Czech singers Veronika Rovná Holbová and Lukáš Bařák, the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra on this occasion led by conductor Marek Prášil as well as Lithuanian pianist Daumantas Kirilauskas and Kaunas State Choir (artistic director Petras Bingelis).

In addition to Viennese classicist Beethoven’s refined Fourth Piano Concerto and contemporary minimalist John Adams’ Short Ride in a Fast Machine, a virtuoso piece for orchestra, the audience will be presented with two monumental musical canvases by Czech romanticist Antonín Dvořák: symphonic poem Polednice (The Noon Witch) and Te Deum for soprano, tenor, choir and orchestra. The symphonic poem portrays a mystical personage of Slavic mythology – a Noon Witch, who, according to many a mother, would come and fetch a child if he would not behave or would not take an afternoon nap. Dvořák composed Te Deum in 1892 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus. At the time Dvořák lived in New York.
