Jakub Hrůša, conductor

Following his thrilling Proms debut in 2017, Czech conductor Jakub Hrůša returns with two popular masterpieces from his homeland.

With its song-like slow movement and irrepressible, folk-infused finale, Dvořák’s Violin Concerto is one of the best-loved in the repertoire. American virtuoso Joshua Bell joins the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra as soloist.

Journey through the Czech countryside in the second half with Smetana’s symphonic suite Má vlast (‘My Country’) – a colourful celebration of a nation’s landscape, castles and warriors, with the sweeping melody of ‘Vltava’ at its heart.
