Dima Slobodeniouk: Dvořák's Seventh
- Gioacchino Rossini Overture La scala di seta
- Leoš Janáček Suite from The Cunning Fox
- Gioacchino Rossini Concert for bassoon and orchestra
- Antonín Dvořák Seventh symphony
Dima Slobodeniouk conducts the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra in music by Rossini, Janáček and Dvořák's Seventh Symphony. Bram van Sambeek is soloist in Rossini's mysterious Bassoon Concerto.
Bram van Sambeek plays Rossini
There are not many famous bassoonists in the world, but Bram van Sambeek, winner of the Dutch Music Prize in 2009, is one of them. He is soloing in one of the most enigmatic bassoon concertos. Rossini supposedly composed his Bassoon Concerto around 1840, but whether he did it all by himself or only partially or whether someone used Rossini's name for his own bassoon concerto is still unclear. Completely by Rossini, however, is the overture to his merry one-act La scala di seta. Even more opera with the musical fable The Cunning Little Fox by Leoš Janáček, of which his compatriot Talich made a beautiful symphonic suite.
Dima Slobodeniouk conducts Dvořák's Seventh Symphony
The fame of Russian-Finnish conductor Dima Slobodeniouk has grown rapidly in a short period of time. His debut with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra was considered one of the most spectacular. He led the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra in Antonín Dvořák's Seventh Symphony, a work he had programmed with several orchestras in recent years, including an acclaimed performance with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. It is therefore a work of great depth that shows the many faces of Dvořák. Melancholy through the death of his mother and eldest child, Bohemian gaiety with inviting dance rhythms and Czech pathos in the nationalistic feelings for his homeland.
