The special concerts series offers traditional philharmonic events, including the season’s Opening Concert (this year Dennis Russell Davies is entering his fourth season as Filharmonie Brno Chief Conductor and Artistic Director with Smetana’s renowned Má vlast), the Advent Concert (this year featuring the music of Saint-Saëns and Ryba), the New Year Concert (this time with a jazz focus featuring works by Duke Ellington, Jaroslav Ježek and Leonard Bernstein, with Emanuele Arciuli on piano) and a concert (not only) for expectant parents entitled The Mozart Effect. In addition to these annual events are two concerts, one featuring Vivaldi’s set of four violin concertos, The Four Seasons, studied in line with the doctrine of the affections. A joint performance by jazz pianist Brad Meldau and Filharmonie Brno will be another exceptional experience.
