Performance Information

“At a time when orchestras far and wide seem to be sounding more alike, the Czech Philharmonic bucks the trend.” – Washington Post

The Czech Republic’s premier orchestra returns to D.C. for the first time under its new music director, Semyon Bychkov, for a signature program featuring Dvorák’s triumphant Seventh Symphony and a rarely heard work by the 20th-century composer Luboš Fišer. Alisa Weilerstein makes her first of two appearance for Washington Performing Arts this season with her “raptly passionate account” of the Dvorák Cello Concerto.

Alisa Weilerstein also appears this season with Inon Barnatan, Sergey Khachatryan, and Colin Currie on May 9

One of 20 World in Our City events this season, this performance is made possible in part through the generous support of Dr. Gary Mather and Ms. Christina Co Mather.

Washington Performing Arts orchestral performances in the 2018/19 season are made possible through the generous support of Betsy and Robert Feinberg.
