About This Performance
Bohemian national spirit is not hard to hear in either Smetana’s tone poem Šárka (about the vengeance of a jilted warrior maid) and Dvořák’s Sixth Symphony, works composed about five years apart. It takes very different forms, however, vividly descriptive in Šárka, expansively sublimated (except for the folk dance Scherzo) in the Symphony.
Jakub Hrůša makes his Los Angeles Philharmonic debut with some of his native Czech repertoire.
The technical clarity and expressive lyricism of Macedonian virtuoso Simon Trpčeski suit Prokofiev’s dazzling Third Piano Concerto.
