The Czech Philharmonic welcomes the warmer season with a debut with world-renowned violinist Lisa Batiashvili. Filmed at the Rudolfinum in Prague, and under the baton of the orchestra’s principal guest conductor Jakub Hrůša, she performs Camille Saint-Saëns’s Third Violin Concerto.

The programme continues with Johannes Brahms’s classically inspired and increasingly complex variations on a chorale theme.

The third piece is Antonín Dvořák’s “Symphonic Variations”; with a theme that comes from Dvořák’s own songs for male choir: “The Fiddler”. The variations that follow its presentation encompass a colourful range of moods, culminating in a fugue that suddenly becomes a lively polka.

The programme is available for distribution, please get in touch with the EuroArts team.
