Yuja Wang Performs Liszt

Feb 10 - Feb 12


Yuja Wang brings her “distinct perspective” and “wizardly technique” (Chicago Tribune) to Liszt’s First Piano Concerto, a pianistic tour de force that takes your breath away. Jakub Hrůša also conducts two Central European neglected gems: Kodály’s colorful Concerto for Orchestra and Martinů’s richly textured First Symphony.

  • Jakub Hrůša


    Jakub Hrůša is chief conductor of the Bamberg Symphony, music director designate of The Royal Opera, Covent Garden (where he becomes music director in 2025), and principal guest conductor of the Czech Philharmonic and the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia. He was named the 2023 Opus Klassik Conductor of the Year.

    He enjoys relationships with the Vienna, Berlin, and Munich philharmonic orchestras; Bavarian Radio, Tokyo’s NHK, Chicago, and Boston symphony orchestras; and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Staatskapelle Dresden, Tonhalle Orchester Zürich, Lucerne Festival Orchestra, Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Mahler Chamber Orchestra, and The Cleveland Orchestra. He has led productions for Lyric Opera of Chicago (Janáček’s Jenůfa), Salzburg Festival (Janáček’s Kát’a Kabanová with the Vienna Philharmonic), Vienna Staatsoper (Janáček’s The Makropulos Case), Covent Garden (Bizet’s Carmen and Wagner’s Lohengrin), Opéra National de Paris (Dvořák’s Rusalka), and Zurich Opera (The Makropulos Case). With Glyndebourne Festival he has conducted Barber’s Vanessa, Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen, Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Turn of the Screw, Carmen, Mozart’s Don Giovanni, and Puccini’s La bohème, and served as music director of Glyndebourne On Tour for three years.

    Hrůša’s discography has received honors including the ICMA Prize for Symphonic Music, for Rott’s Symphony No. 1 and Bruckner’s Symphony No. 4, and the Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik, for Mahler’s Symphony No. 4, both with Bamberg Symphony. His recording of Martinů and Bartók Violin Concertos with Frank Peter Zimmermann was nominated for BBC Music Magazine and Gramophone awards, and his disc of Dvořák’s Violin Concerto with Augustin Hadelich was nominated for a Grammy. His Dvořák and Martinů Piano Concertos, with Ivo Kahánek, and Vanessa, from Glyndebourne, both won BBC Music Magazine Awards.

    Jakub Hrůša studied conducting at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague, where his teachers included Jiří Bělohlávek. He is currently president of the International Martinů Circle and The Dvořák Society, and an honorary member of London’s Royal Academy of Music. In 2023 he was awarded the Bavarian Culture Prize. He was the inaugural recipient of the Sir Charles Mackerras Prize, and in 2020 was awarded the Antonín Dvořák Prize by the Czech Republic’s Academy of Classical Music and — with the Bamberg Symphony — the Bavarian State Prize for Music.
