An Evening in Prague

Bohemia is synonymous with the word “artist,” and the Czech capital of Prague was the crucible for fervent bohemian nationalism in the arts in the 19th century. Nationalist composer Dvořák rose to fame in this great city, paving the way for his student and later son-in-law Josef Suk, as well as the highly original Leoš Janáček, who dedicated a number of his works to Dvořák. This program will transport the listener to those cobbled streets of the old town and back to an era when music served as the voice of the Czech people.
