Chostakovitch Symphony No. 5
A former assistant to Myung-Whun Chung, the young Czech conductor Jakub Hrůša, director of the excellent Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, is now one of the maestros most sought-after by highly prestigious symphonic orchestras and opera houses. These include the Vienna and Berlin Philharmonics, the Bavarian Radio Orchestra, Leipzig, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, and Santa Ceciali in Rome, not to mention on the other side of the Pond, where he has been a hit with musicians in New York, Boston, and Cleveland. He is not very well known in France, despite a few concerts which have helped to bolster his growing reputation. There was a Szymanowski-Suk concert at the Salle Pleyel in 2010, a Stabat Mater by Dvořák at Saint-Denis in 2014, a Rusalka at the Bastille a year later, and concerts at the rostrum of the Philharmonique de Radio France and the Orchestre de Paris. Equally at home in the orchestra pit or on the concert stage, he likes to champion his national repertoire. We can expect a special alchemy when his Slav personality meets the Viennese strings in what is sure to be a top-flight performance.
