About the Concert

Tickets for this event will be available from 12.06.2024 from 10 am.

With our new "Best of Classical Music" concert format, you can immerse yourself in the most famous works of classical music. We begin with a presentation that briefly introduces the work and provides listening tips. Then you can enjoy the selected symphony in a short concert. Afterwards, you are invited to join us at the Kulturpalast bar. Here, host Malte Arkona will be in conversation with the conductor on a small stage in the room. There will be no musicology on the agenda - Malte would rather lead us into the personal world of our respective guests. 

About the concert:

It is curious that a Czech of all people should be the founder of American classical music. But that's how it was: Antonín Dvořák was already so famous in Europe that he was called to New York to write a great symphony there at the end of the 19th century. It was soon called "From the New World" because it musically connects both continents: The classical music of Europe and the music of the indigenous inhabitants and immigrants across the ocean. And so you think you can hear a little jazz and spirituals, as well as Bohemian dance music and classical string sounds.
