For more than four decades, Dennis Russell Davies has championed and presented the first performances of the Philip Glass’ symphonies and operas. Now, with Filharmonie Brno, Davies conducts the New York premiere of Glass’ Symphony No. 12, featuring vocalist Angélique Kidjo. Also on the program are works by two Czech masters: Taras Bulba, a showpiece of Brno’s famed musical citizen, Leoš Janáček, and the delightful scherzo, Thunderbolt-P47, by Bohuslav Martinů.
