Experience the full orchestral sound of the RCM Philharmonic as they perform three symphonic masterpieces from Czech composers Janáček, Dvořák and Smetana.
The programme begins with Dvořak's darkly dramatic tone poem, The Noon Witch, followed by Smetana's Vltava, the most popular of his Má vlast (My Country) symphonic poem collection. Janáček's tripartite orchestral rhapsody, Taras Bulba, provides an energetic conclusion to the night.
