Il Boemo, the award-winning film with Vojtěch Dyk, tells the story of the Czech composer Josef Mysliveček, who became famous in his time especially in Italy and Mozart himself did not hesitate to name him as his role model. Although he was loved and admired primarily for his operas, he has a number of orchestral compositions to his credit as well, among which his symphonies stand out. Conversely, the German Romantic Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, who became famous for his “Wedding March”, drew inspiration from Mozart in his youth. Tonight’s repertoire is varied with chamber works from the turn of the 20th century by Edward Elgar and Jean Sibelius.
