Finale with Liebreich and Vondráček

3. červenec 2019

Returning to Prague for the final concert of the season will be the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra's artist-in-residence Lukáš Vondráček, who since his triumph at the Queen Elizabeth Competition in Brussels in 2016 has been performing in the world's most prestigious halls. In the Rudolfinum's Dvořák Hall he will present the Piano Concerto No. 1 by Johannes Brahms along with the orchestra's principal conductor.

The composer began to conceive of this monumental work, which is longer than Beethoven's "Emperor" concerto, as a sonata for two pianos, but the expanding material ended up requiring the form of a concerto with an orchestra.
