Václav Luks, a leading Czech conductor focused on historically informed interpretation, the founder and artistic director of Collegium 1704, will this time appear before the Radio Symphony to perform a programme combining the music of Johann Sebastian Bach's sons and two Czech classical composers. After the imaginative Symphony in D major, the first of the so-called Hamburg Symphonies by Carl Philip Emanuel Bach, we will hear the Adagio and Fugue in D minor by his elder brother Wilhelm Friedemann, a work which refers in its methods to Baroque music as well as to Romanticism. At Luks's invitation, Roman Patočka will perform one of Josef Mysliveček's violin concertos. The whole evening will close with the surprisingly dramatic Symphony in G minor by the Viennese Czech Leopold Koželuh.
