Rarities Symphony Orchestra

With the program of this concert as part of the 40th International Music Festival, the RSO Vienna once again lives up to its reputation as a dedicated advocate of remote repertoire. Under the musical direction of Jakub Hrůša, it will be one of the rare performances of one of Bohuslav Martinůs late orchestral works and, indeed, the first ever performance of a symphony by his younger contemporary Miloslav Kabeláč at the Vienna Konzerthaus. Hrůša, who is currently preparing a complete recording of Kabeláč's eight symphonies with the Vienna RSO, goes into raptures about the composer: »What I love about his work is the purity of style and the courage to remain true to an idiosyncratic yet universally comprehensible compositional conception under all circumstances, regardless of a fashionable breeze or a gust of time. Kabeláč is for me a moral authority in the artistic sense.« On the part of the orchestra, however, there is no small amount of anticipation for the long-awaited return of American virtuoso Alisa Weilerstein as soloist in György Ligeti's legendary Cello Concerto. A great coup on the occasion of the 100th birthday of the charismatic neutonic composer.
