Kaprálová - Suita Rustica
Mozart - Clarinet Concerto
Dvorák - Symphony No.8
Sergio Castelló López, clarinet
Jonathan Bloxham joins the Hallé for a performance of a magnificent work that simply brims with great melodies, Dvorák’s Eighth Symphony. In the words of the great Czech conductor Vacláv Talich, the symphony “sings of the joy of green pastures, of summer evenings, of the melancholy of blue forests, of the defiant merry-making of Czech peasants.” Sergio Castelló López, the Hallé’s Principal Clarinet, is soloist in Mozart’s serene concerto. Written for the hugely respected 18th-century clarinettist Anton Stadler, Mozart tailored the work to exploit the musician’s virtuosity, celebrated singing tone and love of the instrument’s rich, lower register. The concert opens with Suita Rustica, another work by a Czech composer. Vítězslava Kaprálová was inspired by the folk songs and dances from her homeland and her work is filled with moments of innocent exuberance and exquisite lyricism.
This event is managed by Cardiff St David’s Hall.
