Leading The Cleveland Orchestra’s Friday performance will be the Czech conductor Jakub Hrusa who, in 2011, was named by Gramophone magazine as one of ten young conductors “on the verge of greatness”
Hrusa knows Dvorak’s music extremely well; the first performance of this violin concerto was given in Prague in 1883. He will also lead the orchestra in works by Haydn and Janacek. As Music Director and Chief Conductor of the Prague Philharmonia and Music Director of Glyndebourne on Tour, Hrusa is one of today’s most sought-after young conductors.
This concert is supported by the Ohio Arts Council.
