Concerto for Violin, Piano and Orchestra that Bohuslav Martinů wrote in New York in 1953. The piece bears the typical features of its author's later work, combining restless expanses with simple intimate melodies and arching from its dramatic opening to the catharsis of its conclusion. Conductor Petr Popelka has invited some excellent Czech musicians to perform – the Czech Philharmonic's youngest ever concertmaster Josef Špaček and the highly sought-after pianist Miroslav Sekera.
