Join in celebrating the renewal of nature in spring as well as the promise of young, new musical talent during this Year of Czech Music 2024.

The program includes works by Antonín Dvořák, Josef Suk and Johannes Brahms as well as the world premiere of a concert transcription of Bedřich Smetana’s iconic symphonic poem Vltava, newly arranged for chamber ensemble by composer/pianist Moshe Knoll.

The musicians in this concert comprise talented young students from The Juilliard School in the Pre-College Division as well as seasoned New York players.

PROGRAM

Selections from:

Johannes Brahms, Trio for Piano, Violin and Horn Opus 40 in E Flat

Antonín Dvořák, Piano Trio Opus 21 in B Flat Major

Josef Suk, Four Pieces for Piano and Violin Opus 17

World premiere of a concert transcription of Bedřich Smetana’s Vltava, newly arranged by composer Moshe Knoll for Chamber Ensemble (piano four hands, double string quartet, plus bass).

The Year of Czech Music is a celebration held once a decade on every year that ends on the number four, a number that marks many Czech music anniversaries. This year marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Bedřich Smetana, known as the “father of Czech music.” It is also the 150th anniversary of the birth of Czech composer and violinist Josef Suk, who studied under Antonín Dvořák and married his daughter, and the 120th anniversary of Dvořák’s death.

General admission: $30; seniors, students: $20. Tickets may be purchased online through Eventbrite (plus the processing fee).
