BOHEMIAN RHAPSODIES

  • Dvořák, Serenade for Strings in E Major, Opus 22
  • Dvořák, Notturno
  • Mahler, Adagietto
  • Suk, Meditation
  • Janáček, Suite for Strings
Corona Strings presents a gorgeous programme of string works inspired by Bohemia and the romantic city of Prague. The tuneful Suite by Janáček is a joyful rarity alongside Suk’s yearning Meditation and Mahler’s profoundly beautiful Adagietto. Dvořák’s deservedly famous Serenade is complemented by his very atmospheric Notturno. The programme continues with less well-known, but equally engaging music by some of Dvořák’s countrymen; the joyful Suite for Strings by Janáček and the yearning Meditation by a superb composer of string music – Josef Suk. To complete the programme the orchestra is joined by solo harp to perform Mahler’s profoundly beautiful Adagietto from his 5th Symphony.
