One of classical music’s greatest choral epics, from one of the world’s most exciting young conductors.
Czech-born Jakub Hrůša has been praised worldwide for his passion, theatricality and raw energy, and he has an innate passion for the music of his homeland. He is Chief Conductor of the Bamberger Symphoniker, is also Principal Guest Conductor of London’s Philharmonia Orchestra and a former Music Director of Glyndebourne Touring Opera.
Dvořak’s monumental Requiem is a deeply involving lament for the dead, shot through with the composer’s unmistakable rich melodies, dramatic flair and bright orchestral colours.
