Paavo Järvi conducts the Philharmonia Orchestra in a programme exploring the stunning musical landscapes of Czech composer Antonín Dvorák.

From its opening bars, Dvorák’s Carnival Overture charges headlong into the frenzied energy of a night at the carnival.

It is followed by his Cello Concerto, which wistfully echoes the folk-inspired Slavic sounds of his homeland and pays tribute to his lost love, Josefina. Dvorák crafted the elegiac slow movement around a line from one of her favourite of his songs, Kéz duch muj sám (Leave me alone).
