Czech Philharmonic

Petr Altrichter, conductor

Marek Eben, moderator

Marek Eben will be the listener’s guide to the musical galaxies. What does a composer put into music, and what do the players and the conductors add? Is the score sacred, or can compositions be adapted somehow? And how does one get an orchestra to play the music just as the conductor imagines it? We invite you to the brand new, fun, and informative programme by Alice Nellis for everyone who wants to know more about music!

César Franck: The Symphony in D minor, Mov. II  

Antonín Dvořák: Legends, Op.59, Mov. VI

George Enescu: The Romanian Rhapsody, No. I
