The two Hungarians not only played music, they were themselves the music – in every nerve – down to their fingertips.

Conductor: Péter Csaba

Czech composer Antonín Dvořák has lost nothing of his popularity in the 115 years since his death. His hugely inventive, bright and powerful music is rooted in Czech folk music. All this is true of his violin concerto and although not as well known as the concerto for cello, it is still an excellent piece and shows off the attractions of the violin. Soloist of the concert is the Czech violinist Josef Špaček who although only in his thirties can already boast many international successes. He attended the Prague Conservatory and then perfected his technique under Itzhak Perlman at the Juilliard School of Music, and with Jaime Laredo at the Curtis Institute of Music. Péter Csaba, violinist and conductor born in Cluj-Napoca and long a resident of France, has for decades regularly conducted in Hungary, while he has been chief conductor of MÁV Symphony Orchestra since 2012.
