The works of the quintessentially Czech composer Antontoin Dvorak are, above all, enjoyable and perennial favourites of the Romantic repertoire. This six-part series of concerts is performed by the Prague Symphony Orchestra and Chorus and the Prague Philharmonic Choir, with three leading Czech conductors on the podium: Petr Altrichter, Jire Belohluvek, and Libor Pesek. Guest soloists include soprano Lucia Popp, alto Eva Randovue, tenor Josef Protschka, bass Peter Mikulas, pianist Igor Ardasev, violinist Ivan Zenaty and cellist Mischa Maisky, who plays one of Dvorak's finest works, the Cello Concerto. Directed by Rodney Greenberg.
