Prague Philharmonia

Founded in 1994, The Prague Philharmonia demonstrates its tremendous love for the music it performs, with a sparkling passion that makes every listener return home from its concerts full of joie de vivre.

The late Yehudi Menuhin called Sarah Chang “the most wonderful, perfect, ideal violinist I have ever heard” — this at the age of eight, when she made her debut with the New York Philharmonic. Chang has continued to impress with her technical virtuosity and refined emotional depth and is the featured soloist in this program of some of classical music’s most beloved scores.

Pianist Andrew Von Oeyen, who “leaves you convinced he can do absolutely anything he likes with a keyboard,” (Chicago Tribune), performs Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with the orchestra.

Dvořák Violin Concerto in a minor, Op. 53
