Dvořák & Janáček: Czech Icons

Event details

Tickets Available.

In this season-finale concert, violinist John Storgårds and pianist Kirill Gerstein play Janáček’s Violin Sonata, which is noted for both its urgency and lyricism, and, for the first time ever, Gerstein joins forces with the Dover Quartet for a performance of one of the standouts of the chamber music repertoire: Dvořák’s rousing Piano Quintet, Op. 81. The modal harmonies and improvisational feel of Janáček’s sonata coupled with the dumka and Bohemian dances in Dvořák’s quintet offers an invigorating taste of the folk music these two composers brought from their shared homeland and onto the international concert stage. 

JANÁČEK Sonata for Violin and Piano

MOZART String Quartet in E-flat Major, K. 428

DVOŘÁK Piano Quintet in A Major, Op. 81
