Event Details

For their second concert, the GT Concert Orchestra presents a selection of pieces with Czech origins. They will begin with The Moldau, the most enduring of six symphonic poems in Smetana’s symphonic cycle Má vlast (“My Fatherland”), which evokes the stories and landscapes of the composer’s homeland in Bohemia. Next up is the second movement of Beethoven’s seventh symphony, which was written while he was staying in the Bohemian town of Teplice; the work itself is poignant in every sense, and this movement is one of Beethoven’s most well-received musical moments, with a stirring processional rhythm that commemorates the struggles and triumphs endured by war veterans. They will conclude the evening with two of Dvořák's Slavonic Dances and the third of Smetana’s symphonic poems, Šárka. 

Free seating by general admission.
