Bohuslav Martinu Philharmonic Orchestra
Fiona Talkington presents some of the best concerts from around Europe. Tonight we are in the Czech Republic with the Bohuslav Martinu Philharmonic Orchestra.
Some of the best recent concerts in Europe come to Radio 3 on a Sunday evening. This week Fiona Talkington presents a concert from Holesov, a town in the centre of the Czech Republic, not far from the birthplace of Bohuslav Martinů. And it is the Bohuslav Martinů Philharmonic that are performing tonight's programme, together with young conductor Nikol Kraft, who is rapidly gaining a reputation for her interpretations of Czech Symphonic music, and Tchaikovsky Prize-winning cellist Michaela Fukačová.
