Immerse yourself in the rhythms, sounds and folk roots of music by Czech composers, as Christian Ihle Hadland launches this new series.
Norwegian pianist Christian Ihle Hadland – a former BBC New Generation Artist – launches this series with music for solo piano. Contrasting selections from Smetana's exhuberant, lyrical and rich Czech Dances with Janáček's dark and moody On an Overgrown Path.
Running parallel to Sir Simon Rattle's exploration of Czech music, and the folk traditions behind it, with the London Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican, this series of BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime Concerts at LSO St Luke's takes a look at solo and chamber music by Czech composers.
