In February 2022, the PKF — Prague Philharmonia was one of the first Czech ensembles to unequivocally declare its support for Ukraine after the invasion. However, we did not want our support for Ukrainian musicians to remain symbolic — and so you will be able to get to know some of them during the third subscription evening.
The concert will be conducted by Mykola Diadiura, artistic director of the Ukrainian National Opera, who studied with the legendary Leonard Bernstein. The program will include the music of this country.
The evening will open with Holy God by contemporary Ukrainian composer Oleksandr (aka Alexander) Rodin. We can also find a Ukrainian trace in Szymanowski — although he became a key figure in Polish music of the early 20th century, he was born in what is now Tymoshivka, Ukraine. His Violin Concerto No. 2, one of Szymanowski’s last works, contains neo-folk elements represented by hints of Polish folk music.
The solo part will be performed by Vadim Gluzman, an Israeli violinist of Ukrainian origin, winner of the Diapason d’Or.
The concert will close with non-Slavic music: one of Ludwig van Beethoven’s overlooked works, the exuberant Symphony No. 4.
