Jakub Hrůša, Bavarian Radio and Mahler
At the beginning of his career, the young Czech conductor Jakub Hrůša gained fame for his interpretations of works by Mozart and Czech composers. For several years he has set his sights on Mahler, born in Bohemia, so actually also a Czech. In February 2020 he performed Mahler's Symphony No. 2 with the London Philharmonia Orchestra. A performance that impressed the press and the public. "Surprising and enthralling at every moment," Bachtrack wrote. Hrůša also previously led the Philharmonia in Mahler's Symphony No. 3. "Remarkable," wrote The Guardian, and awarded the four-star orchestra, conductor, choir, and soloist. Tonight Jakub Hrůša will conduct Symphony No. 3. again, this time with one of the world's most prominent orchestras, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra.
Mahler's Symphony No. 3
Mahler initially gave his Symphony No. 3 a program: a summer morning dream. In the six parts he spoke to animals, flowers and angels. He later removed all of these titles, but this symphony remained a declaration of love to nature and the universe.
