Feelings burn brightly in Bohemia, and no-one understands that like conductor Sir Mark Elder – an artist whose theatrical flair makes everything he touches catch fire.
Janácek’s overture Jealousy lights the fuse, before a rare chance to hear Dvorák’s The Wild Dove.
This is a tale of passion, murder and supernatural vengeance, told in music as vivid and as powerful as the old Czech ballads that inspired it.
And then Steven Isserlis plays the greatest of all cello concertos, written in the New World but blazing with nostalgia for Europe.
They say it was inspired by the sight of Niagara Falls: it certainly sounds like it.
