In me la morte
The first concert of February promised to be an exceptional experience, bringing together the music of the early Romantic period with contemporary music.
Performed by the men's section of the Prague Philharmonic Choir and the low strings of the radio symphony players, it opened with the Franz Schubert’s eerie Gesang der Geister über den Wassern.
Full orchestra continued with famous „Unfinished“Symphony by the same composer. The second half of the evening was dedicated mostly to female voice. Soprano Kateřina Kněžíková presented setting of a poem of Michelangelo Buonarotti by Czech contemporary composer Jiří Kadeřábek.
In the final of the concert, she wase joined by fellow soprano Kateřina Kalvachová, women of the Prague Philharmonic Choir and the orchestra in order to perform incidental music to Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy.
