BOHEMIAN RHAPSODIES

Dvořák: Serenade for Strings in E Major, Opus 22
Dvořák: Notturno
Mahler: Adagietto
Suk: Meditation
Janáček: Suite for Strings

Corona Strings
Leader, Catherine Leech
Conductor, Janet Lincé

Corona Strings presents a gorgeous programme of string works inspired by Bohemia and the romantic city of Prague.  The tuneful Suite by Janáček is a joyful rarity alongside Suk’s yearning Meditation and Mahler’s profoundly beautiful Adagietto.

Dvořák’s deservedly famous Serenade is complemented by his very atmospheric Notturno.  The programme continues with less well-known, but equally engaging music by some of  Dvořák’scountrymen; the joyful Suite for Strings by Janáček and the yearning Meditation by a superb composer of string music – Josef Suk. To complete the programme the orchestra is joined by solo harp to perform Mahler’s profoundly beautiful Adagietto from his 5th Symphony.
