Harps, clarinets, violins and cellos will take centre stage in the opening concert of Cycle E, featuring works by true masters. Jan Křtitel Krumpholz was an important Czech harpist and composer who studied in Paris and worked in Vienna. He composed a concerto for harp and orchestra in 1778 and premiered it himself.

Another of the Czech musical greats, František Vincenc Kramář, was inspired by Mozart and Beethoven. Kramář always had high standards for his musicians as he proves in his Concerto for two clarinets and orchestra.

The Melancholy Serenade belongs to the shorter works of Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky and is not easy to interpret. Another short piece by this Russian great, Valse-Scherzo for violin and orchestra, composed in 1877, also makes high technical demands on the soloist and tests his talent and technical preparation.

The final word will belong to Joseph Haydn and his Concerto for Cello and Orchestra which he composed in 1783 for Antonín Kraft, cellist of the Esterhazy band. For some time the authenticity of the piece was doubted and it was even said that Kraft wrote it himself. Only when Haydn’s autograph appeared in 1951 was his authorship definitively confirmed.
