MCO brings to life the virtuosity of Romantic string writing with a trio of brilliant Czech composers and a mighty violin concerto.
Dvořák’s Serenade is a beloved showpiece, with the attention to detail of the composer’s renowned quartets and the drama of his symphonies. Compatriots Janáček and Suk complete the picture with evocative works full of lush harmonies and folk-inspired inflections.
Glazunov was a Russian contemporary of Dvořák and his Violin Concerto is a staple of the virtuoso violinist’s repertoire. Ukrainian-Australian virtuoso Markiyan Melnychenko performs the show-stopping solo with MCO in a new arrangement for string orchestra.
