Gábor Boldoczki (trumpet) PKF - Prague Philharmonia

PKF - Prague Philharmonia look back on a history of more than two decades, to their formation on the initiative of Jiří Bělohlávek in 1994. The world-famous conductor was Conductor Laureate of the ensemble since 2005 until his death. The current head is the music director of The Dallas Opera, Frenchman Emmanuel Villaume. The ensemble invited three superb soloists to a concert given in the Prague Rudolfinum in autumn 2016: bassoon player Milan Turkovič as conductor and two globally-renowned trumpet virtuosi, Sergei Nakaryakov and Gábor Boldoczki, as soloists. One of the productions at this gala of the trumpet was a trumpet concerto by the 18th century Czech composer Jan Křtitel Jiří Neruda (Johann Baptist Georg Neruda). Neruda pursued a distinctive career: having completed his studies in music he went on to a glittering career abroad culminating in a position as concertmaster of the Dresden court orchestra. The best known and most frequently performed work by Neruda, who composed several symphonies and concertos, is the magnificent trumpet concerto that Gábor Boldoczki is set to captivate the audience with in this recital at the Liszt Academy.
