The final Czech concert conducted by Jakub Hrůša pairs Dvořák's eloquent Cello Concerto with his son-in-law Josef Suk's heartfelt Asrael Symphony. Composed in memory of Dvořák and his own wife (Dvořák daughter), the symphony is named after the angel of death who protects the deceased during their journey in the afterlife to the land of eternal blissfulness.
