Paavo Järvi conductor
Gautier Capuçon cello
Dvořák Carnival Overture
Dvořák Cello Concerto
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 its opening bars, Dvořák’s Carnival Overture charges headlong into the frenzied energy of a night at the carnival, while his Cello Concerto wistfully echoes the folk-inspired Slavic sounds of his homeland as well as pays tribute to the composer’s lost love, Josefina. Finally, Dvořák’s mighty Symphony No. 7, declared ‘fit to shake the world’ and home to an infectious Scherzo and a glorious, resounding finale.
