The Chief Conductor and Artistic Director

I am both proud and excited to present to our faithful audience in Brno, and to our audiences abroad, the 2019-2020 season of the Filharmonie Brno. Our city occupies a unique position geographically and economically between Prague and Vienna, and our program clearly supports the strong position that Brno’s cultural life has assumed in this international region. We will play an significant and unique role in the international celebration of Beethoven‘s (b.1770) life and music this season and next, by presenting in two compact weeks his complete piano concertos with Elisabeth Leonskaja, the complete Sonatas and Variations (Filharmonie Brno cellists, and myself as pianist) on one Sunday in February, , the Ninth Symphony to open the year 2020, and as a special Czech rarity, three performances in Besedni dum of Antonin Reicha‘s stage tableau „Lenore“, which so greatly impressed Beethoven.

The music of Brahms and Dvorak continue to play a significant role in our programming, and I am personally very pleased as „Chef“ to have the opportunity to appear for the first time with „my“ orchestra on the stage of the Janacek Theater. I am especially delighted to bring for the first time to the Filharmonie Brno and our public several close friends and collaborators including performer and composer Laurie Anderson, the cellist Matt Haimowitz, composer Joe Hisaishi (Japan), and the respected conductor Michael Schönwandt. My former student Christian Reif is having a good international success as a young conductor, and I am very pleased that Robert Kruzik continues his fine work with us as our Resident Conductor. That Elisabeth Leonskaja will work with the orchestra and me for three weeks, and that Michal Nejtek writes a new work for us, are both personal highlights, and for the first time we will present a visual collaboration with the Ars Electronica and it’s Director Gerfried Stöcker, with music of Martinu.

I am looking forward to a great Season 2019-2020 in Brno.

Dennis Russell Davies
