Yuja Wang Performs Liszt

Feb 10 - Feb 12

CYO

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

    Conductor

    Jakub Hrůša is chief conductor of the Bamberg Symphony and principal guest conductor of the Czech Philharmonic and the Orchestra dell’Accademia nazionale di Santa Cecilia. He is a frequent guest with the world’s greatest orchestras, including the Vienna, Berlin, Munich, and New York philharmonic orchestras; the Bavarian Radio, NHK, Chicago, and Boston symphony orchestras; the Leipzig Gewandhaus, Lucerne Festival, Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw, Mahler Chamber, and Cleveland orchestras; and the Orchestre philharmonique de Radio France and Tonhalle Orchester Zürich.

    Hrůša has led opera productions for the Vienna Staatsoper, Opéra national de Paris, Zurich Opera, and the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. A regular guest with Glyndebourne Festival, he served as music director of Glyndebourne On Tour for three years.

    His recording of Martinů and Bartók violin concertos with the Bamberg Symphony was nominated for a Gramophone Award, and his release of Dvořák’s Violin Concerto with the Bavarian Radio Symphony was nominated for a Grammy Award. In 2020 two of his recordings won BBC Music Magazine Awards: Dvořák and Martinů Piano Concertos, with the Bamberg Symphony, and Vanessa from Glyndebourne. His other releases include Dvořák and Brahms symphonies with the Bamberg Symphony, Suk’s Asrael with the Bavarian Radio Symphony, and Dvořák’s Requiem and Te Deum with the Czech Philharmonic.

    Jakub Hrůša studied at Prague’s Academy of Performing Arts, where his teachers included Jiří Bělohlávek. He is president of the International Martinů Circle and of The Dvořák Society. 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.
