Hrůša – conductor
Alisa Weilerstein – cello
DVOŘÁK Silent Woods, for cello and orchestra
DVOŘÁK Rondo, for solo cello and orchestra
DVOŘÁK Czech Suite
Dvořák wears his nation’s heart on his sleeve in the Czech Suite, with its graceful Polka, stately triple-time Sousedská and energetic Furiant. So too does Jakub Hrůša, who lives and breathes the music of his homeland and loves to share it on the international stage. A dancer himself, Hrůša’s conducting testifies to his experience of this music as movement, as well as sound.
Soloist Alisa Weilerstein, recently praised for the ‘sunlit clarity’ of her playing (The Guardian), gets to show us her more extrovert side in the Rondo, whose sprightly recurring theme frames passages of increasing virtuosity.
