Cesky Krumlov 2006

In May of 2006, I had the great honor of conducting a concert to celebrate the anniversary of the end of World War II. This concert was especially rewarding for many reasons:
  • we performed in the beautiful castle of Cesky Krumlov,
  • the program was filled with extremely exciting music (Smetana - Overture to the Bartered Bride, Dvorak - Cello Concerto, Tchaikovsky - Symphony #5),
  • the soloist Jiri Barta was one of the best on the entire planet for this piece (!),
  • and most of all the South Bohemian Chamber Orchestra played on a world class level not only in the concert but also with care and intensity during the rehearsals!
