For the opening concert of its London season, the ECO explores the ‘Prague connection’. The orchestra’s popular and charismatic Leader, Stephanie Gonley, directs the ECO in two of Dvořák’s most captivating works, both composed in Prague – the Serenade for Strings and the Romance for Violin. Stephanie is the soloist in the Romance, and also plays Mozart’s high-spirited Violin Concerto No. 4, written while he was still a teenager. The concert concludes with the magnificent D major Symphony composed by Mozart in 1787 for the city in which he enjoyed some of his greatest triumphs.
