Czech Mates: 5th season Opening Night
Time & Location
About The Event
Described by the New York Times as a “marvel of virtuosity", Daniel Veis has been widely recognized as the finest Czech cellist since winning the Silver Medal at the prestigious 1978 Tchaikovsky International Competition in Moscow. He will be joined by pianist Helena Veisova in a selection of character pieces by Suk and Martinu.
This delightful evening of chamber music will also feature one of the most beautiful works of the romantic repertoire: Dvorak’s A major piano quintet. This colossal work will reunite NAVO’s core members Véronique Mathieu and Mandy Wang on violin, violist Shah Sadikov, cellist Sunnat Ibrahim as well as guest pianist Lolita Lisovskaya-Sayevich. Inspired by Bohemian folk dances, this grandiose chamber music work is one of Dvorak’s most celebrated compositions!
