ANTONÍN DVOŘÁK

On the one hand, soloists, choir and large orchestra with organ, gong and bells; on the other, a deeply minimalist motif. At times crying out, then becoming melancholy, consoling or sighing in deep despair: with his Requiem, Antonin Dvořák managed to transport audiences into both ecstasy and sombre, reflective worlds – music between heaven and earth, a dialogue between the living and the dead. Marek Šedivý, a compatriot of Dvořák, conducts the demanding and – for that very reason – seldom performed Requiem with the Tonkunstler Orchestra and the Slovakian Philharmonic Choir. An extraordinary sonic experience!
