Dvořák The Noon Witch
Smetana Mà vlast no 2: Vltava
Janáček Taras Bulba

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.

Follow the story: Enjoy enhanced listening with real-time digital programme notes during this performance.

To access the webpage please:

• Switch your phone to silent (ideally without vibrating alerts) to silence calls and notifications

• If you wish, you can also set your phone to flight mode to stop calls, and switch on WIFI to log onto our free RCM-CONCERT network, which should direct you straight to the notes

• Although we are encouraging people to use their phones, recording and photography are not permitted during the music, as applies to all concerts at the RCM

• If you need help getting the online notes to work before the concert begins, ask one of our stewards, who will be able to help

We have designed the notes with light text on a dark background to have minimum impact on other audience members.

We hope you enjoy using the digital notes and would welcome your feedback at comments@rcm.ac.uk.
