Czech Philharmonic/Semyon Bychkov

Glagolitic Mass

Semyon Bychkov conducting 2018

Marvel at the unstoppable force of the Czech Philharmonic celebrating the very best of their nation’s culture under Chief Conductor Semyon Bychkov, playing the music they were formed to play. 

Close your eyes and you could be in the Bohemian countryside, with Dvořák’s joyful Eighth Symphony offering colour, cheer, and a vision into the pastoral lands of his homeland. In complete contrast, his countryman Janáček’s Glagolitic Mass sets you off down a path that is mighty, triumphant and magnificent. 

For this second of the Czech Philharmonic’s two-concert residency, the City of Birmingham Symphony Chorus lend their vocal pipes to bring you a small but almighty slice of the Czech tradition. And under the guidance Semyon Bychkov, who's quietly emerged as a titan of the podium, you're in great hands for the return of international orchestras to our stage.
