Leos Janácek
Suite from the Opera «Jenufa» (Arr.: Peter Breiner)
- interval -

Love and passion, light and shade lie close together in this programme, which brings the Czech conductor Tomáš Netopil and the Russian violinist Alena Baeva back to the Tonkunstler. Leoš Janáček’s opera «Jenůfa» is about tragic interweavings of love, morality and guilt in a Moravian village. A young Béla Bartók had just finished a violin concerto when his beloved, a violinist, rejected his proposal of marriage – upon which the work was consigned to a dark drawer where it remained for 50 years. The sunniest of sounds, by contrast, flood the splendid Brahms homage that is Antonín Dvořák’s Sixth Symphony: music to fall in love with.
