Celebration of Dvořák
Kenneth Woods - conductor
Pavel Šporcl - violin
Dvořák Slavonic Dances op. 72 (selections)
Dvořák Violin Concerto in A minor op. 53
Dvořák Symphony no. 8 in G major op. 88
Join Kenneth Woods and the ESO for the celebration of the greatest of all Czech composers with today's distinguished Czech violin virtuoso, Pavel Šporcl.
Šporcl's recording of his countryman's concerto has been hailed by Gramophone as "... a warmly idiomatic reading ... tonal variety and expressiveness ... magnetic."
The concert opens with a lively selection of Slavonic Dances and ends with a performance of Dvořák's vibrant and tuneful Eighth Symphony."
