Concert Information

It's said that Dvořák drew inspiration for his Cello Concerto from Niagara Falls - and yet every note seems to yearn for his imminent return home to Bohemia. Not every journey ends with a homecoming though; the exiled Béla Bartók knew he was dying as he wrote his Concerto for Orchestra. He responded with a roof-raising shout of joy. And what better opening than the woodland poetry of Janáček's most life-affirming opera?

**Please note change of conductor. Richard Farnes is indisposed.

Prelude: 6.45pm in the Recital Room (free to ticket-holders, limited seating availability)
Joshua Roman in conversation.

Post-Concert Coda (approximately 10 minutes after the main concert)
