With the Symphonies Nos. 1 and 4, Jiří Bělohlávek and his Czech Philharmonic have started the ambitious project of recording the complete Martinů symphonies cycle at the visually and acoustically spectacular Rudolfinum Prague.

After the death of his mentor Jiří Bělohlávek, who was considered one of the world’s most renowned Martinů experts, rising star conductor Jakub Hrůša is going to complete the cycle with performances of Martinů’s Symphonies Nos. 2, 3, 5 and 6 between March 2018 and January 2019. Hrůša has recently been hailed by the New York Times for his “passionate, thrilling” way of presenting his ‘all-Czech’ concert at the BBC Proms. Last year’s season has also seen him make debuts with the Boston Symphony, Chicago Symphony, Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Mahler Chamber Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, and the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra. In addition, Hrůša was appointed Principal Guest Conductor of the Philharmonia Orchestra and embarked upon his inaugural season as Chief Conductor of the Bamberg Symphony.

Bohuslav Martinů is deemed the greatest Czech composer of his generation and a major twentieth century symphonist. His style is eclectic, unconventional, and juxtaposes a variety of styles drawn from his homeland Moravia to the jazz of the ‘new world’, the USA, where he lived from 1941-1953 and where he created all of his six Symphonies.
