The International Music Festival will once again celebrate the work of the world-renowned Czech composer Antonín Dvořák.
The festival programme presents the complete string quartet works of Antonín Dvořák, focusing on the presentation of the emerging generation of performers and established artists, including a series of accompanying programmes. The Czech Philharmonic Orchestra has once again accepted the status of orchestra in residence.
The festival will traditionally open with Dvořák’s New World Symphony and Cello Concerto performed by the Munich Philharmonic, conductor Myung-Whun Chung and soloist Truls Mørk. The Cleveland Orchestra and its chief conductor Franz Welser-Möst, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra with Vasily Petrenko and pianist Lukáš Vondráček, and the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra with conductor Daniel Harding and violinist Veronika Eberle will also be presented. And the legendary Argentine pianist Martha Argerich will complete the parade of world performers on the festival stage.
