Dvořák — Violin Concerto in A minor, Op.53, B.96

Janáček — Sinfonietta
With its military bands, dazzling fanfares, and 13 additional brass players, Janáček’s Sinfonietta sounds as fresh today as it did at its premiere. Opening the program are two seminal works by fellow countryman Antonín Dvořák, whose lively, folk-like sensibilities defined the language of late-19th-century Romantic music.
This free pre-concert talk, sponsored by the Fort Wayne Philharmonic Friends, is designed to provide audience members insight into the evening’s concert program and featured guest artists. Musically Speaking is hosted by Fort Wayne Philharmonic conducting staff, musicians, and guest artists.
