Semyon Bychkov: Czech Philharmonic Announcement Speech

27. 10. 2017 •

"But you know, ladies and gentlemen, after this kind of appeal, after this kind of introduction, after everything that I lived with these people on stage where there were moments of such indescribable beauty on that stage that you say to yourself how beautiful it is to be alive and to receive it. And when that appeal comes to you, there is no other choice but to accept gratefully and try to imagine how you can make sure that the world always recognises this Orchestra as a treasure."From the speech of Semyon Bychkov

When the conductor Semyon Bychkov was asked to record the complete symphonic works of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky with the Czech Philharmonic for the Decca label, he did not take too long to think it over. The orchestra’s unique sound and the modesty of its players sparked a desire for collaboration in this great expert on Tchaikovsky’s music.

Manfred Honeck: Music has something in common with a feeling for language

27. 3. 2017 • Dina Šnejdarová

Manfred Honeck brings light to the Lenten season with the optimism of Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8 and of W. A. Mozart’s Symphony No. 33, complementing the colorful lyricism of Richard Strauss’s Four Last Songs sung by the great German soprano Christiane Karg. The concerts have become, among other things, an opportunity for Maestro Honeck’s personal retrospection on his tenure so far as Principal Guest Conductor, which reached its apex last season.

David Robertson: Messiaen’s music changed my musical world

24. 11. 2016 • Dina Šnejdarová

The Czech Philharmonic will be opening the pre-Christmas season with one of the most noteworthy musical disquisitions on love, life, and death, the Turangalîla-Symphonie by the French composer Olivier Messiaen. Nearly seventy years after its premiere, the orchestra will be presenting the work at the Rudolfinum with artists whose careers have been heavily influenced by the music of this composer, in part thanks to personal encounters with him. The conductor for the concerts on 7–9 December will be David Robertson, and Pierre-Laurent Aimard will be at the piano.
