Bringing together many works rarely exhibited before in the UK, this survey exhibition will highlight the abstract sculptures of Slovak artist Maria Bartuszová. Bartuszová worked in relative isolation over three decades in Košice, the second-largest city in Slovakia. Her artistic life was constrained by the limitations of socialist Czechoslovakia, as well as financial concerns and the demands of family life. Even so, she made some 500 sculptures, from small tactile organic forms and reliefs, to commissions for public spaces and ephemeral…

Founded in 1994, the Czech ensemble raised its profile via competitions such as the London International String Quartet Competition in 2006, when it also took the audience prize, as well as other successes in Prague (2005), Banff (2007) and Bordeaux (2010); in 2008 it received the Alexander Zemlinsky Advancement Award.

Mozart’s Czech mates

September 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Wigmore Hall, 36 Wigmore Street
London, W1U 2BP United Kingdom

Mozart felt that the people of Prague appreciated his music more than anyone else, and many of the most influential and highly-regarded composers of his era were Bohemians. This dynamic programme is framed by two vibrantly dramatic G minor symphonies, and it also features three arias and a startlingly visceral scene from Benda’s melodrama Medea. Programme Johann Baptist Vanhal (1739-1813) Symphony in G minor Bryan g2 Christoph Willibald Gluck (1714-1787) La clemenza di Tito, Se mai senti spirarti sul volto Wolfgang…

Wigmore Hall, 36 Wigmore Street
London, W1U 2BP United Kingdom

The second of Haas’s quartets was composed in 1925. Its unusual title is a joking reference to the Moravian Highlands; each movement describes experiences summer holidaymakers might encounter there. The group’s recording of the piece won it its first Gramophone Award in 2006, when it was also chosen as Disc of the Year by the Daily Telegraph. Programme Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)      String Quartet in G Op. 76 No. 1 Sergey Prokofiev (1891-1953)   String Quartet No. 2 in F Op. 92…

Barbican Centre, Silk Street
London, EC2Y 8DS United Kingdom

Leoš Janáček’s opera of loneliness, love, and the price of passion, in a dramatic concert performance from Sir Simon Rattle and a hand-picked cast sung in Czech. Káťa is young, sensitive and desperate for love. But trapped in a remote country village with a bored husband and his snobbish family, she has no way out, until a summer thunderstorm changes everything. Uncompromisingly honest, and pulsing with intensely human emotion, Káťa Kabanová is opera for grown-ups, written in music that cuts…
