Cadogan Hall
5 Sloane Terrace, London, SW1X 9DQ

Conductor - Libor Pešek
Piano - Leon McCawley

SMETANA The Bartered Bride Overture

CHOPIN Piano Concerto No.1

DVORÁK Symphony No.7

Czech conductor Libor Pešek has enjoyed an international career spanning fifty years, and this irresistible programme is the perfect showcase for his celebrated interpretations of Czech music. Smetana’s exuberant Overture to his comic opera, The Bartered Bride, brims with infectious energy, whereas Dvorák’s impassioned Symphony No.7 captures the full emotional spectrum of Czech musical styles. With its profound depth of feeling and masterful orchestral balance, this is considered by many to be Dvorák’s greatest symphonic achievement. At the heart of this programme, Leon McCawley performs the First Piano Concerto by Polish composer Chopin, whose exquisite writing for the soloist overflows with romance.
