Dvořák & Janáček: Czech Icons

Event details

Tickets for this concert are currently only available as part of a subscription series. Individual tickets go on sale in February 2024.

Violinist John Storgårds and pianist Kirill Gerstein open this program with Janáček’s tumultuous Violin Sonata. Gerstein then joins forces for the first time with the Dover Quartet in Dvořák’s rousing Piano Quintet, Op. 81. The modal harmonies and improvisational feel of Janáček’s sonata, with the Dumka and the Bohemian folk dances in Dvořák’s quintet, together offer an invigorating taste of the folk music these two composers brought from their homeland into the concert hall.
