Dvořák Symphony No. 7 in D minor (Op. 70)

Paavo Järvi conducts a programme exploring the stunning musical landscapes of Czech composer Antonín Dvořák. From the exuberant opening bars of Dvořák’s Carnival overture to the heroic conclusion of his Seventh Symphony declared ‘fit to shake the world’ by Dvořák himself, experience the unbuckled joy of this supremely life-affirming music. In between the works by Dvořák, young trumpet virtuoso Lucienne Renaudin Vary performs a classical masterpiece with a particularly gorgeous, soulful slow movement: Hummel’s Trumpet Concerto.
