Sunday Classics

Czech National Symphony Orchestra with Pavel Kolesnikov

The extraordinarily powerful 'Unfinished' Symphony by Franz Schubert

3:00pm, Sunday 22 April 2018

Pavel Kolesnikov

Although only two movements were completed, Schubert’s eighth symphony has become a musical icon. The Guardian’s Tom Service described it as “the complete, essential and mysterious symphonic experience.” The works extraordinary power and emotionality speaks to the composer’s state of body and mind at the time of its composition, instilling in it a heart-felt spirituality.

The Czech National Symphony Orchestra is joined by rising star Pavel Kolesnikov for Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto. In 2014 Kolesnikov became one of BBC Radio 3’s New Generation Artists and made his Wigmore Hall debut. The Telegraph gave his recital a rare five-star review and called it “one of the most memorable of such occasions London has witnessed in a while.”

To complete the programme, Dvořák’s greatest symphony, the 7th. Dvořák himself talked about creating a work that “must be capable of stirring the world”, and indeed he did. Brimming with Slavic melodies and patriotic emotions, who better to perform this than the Czech Republic’s national orchestra?
