The first concert in Jakub Hrusa's Czech series opens with two rarely performed works - Janácek's breathtaking overture 'Jealousy', and Josef Suk's symphonic poem 'Praga'.

Dvorák's enchanting Violin Concerto is followed by his son-in-law Janácek's best known work, the 'Sinfonietta', a dazzlingly inventive score dedicated to 'the free Czech men and women of today'.
