66th season 2020 | 21

As is tradition, a range of music proven over the centuries has been prepared alongside contemporary works. The orchestra will be returning to celebrations of the anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, for example, honouring him through composers inspired by Beethoven: Liszt, Hindemith, Franck. Some of the classical composers we will be performing include Schumann, Brahms, Berlioz, Mahler and Mozart. The season will begin with a classic of national classical music: Smetana’s Má vlast. More recent works will be represented by Sumera, Vasks, Jan Novák, Kančeli and Bernstein amongst others.

To the friends and supporters of the Filharmonie Brno!

Before beginning my greeting to all of you on behalf of your wonderful orchestra, I have read again the words I wrote on this occasion just one year ago. Since then, our society, indeed the entire world, has experienced a tremendous shock affecting us in profound ways that are yet to be fully understood. For many, the pandemic has brought personal tragedy and sacrifice, and all of us are seeking to find out how we will be able to pick up the threads of our existences and continue forward as we gradually emerge from this dark period.

We as an orchestra with a tremendous organization behind us are dedicated to two important, even vital, responsibilities: Firstly, the preservation and expansion of our great classical music tradition, and secondly, to make the live performances of this music available to the widest possible audiences. These ideals have motivated and guided us during the past year as we have navigated through hard choices involving how to maintain the integrity of our work while keeping our audience, musicians, and staff as safe as possible.

We have had to, sadly, cancel or postpone many wonderful projects, and have worked very hard to responsibly keep as many initiatives as possible in our future programs. I am proud of our musicians for their disciplined and responsible approach to their work, grateful to Marie Kučerová and her wonderful team for their tireless efforts on behalf of our symphonic tradition, and excited with the hope that we can soon experience again performing for our wonderful Brno audience, and hopefully our newly-found audience abroad.
