Get your blood pumping and put a smile on your face with this afternoon concert of Czech and Hungarian crackers. With their transcriptions of traditional folk tunes, Janáček and Dvořák preserved an era and a way of life that still shines through this music. The 71-year old Janáček also showed that age has no impact on invention and his magnificent Sinfonietta calls for 12 – yes, 12 – trumpets. Ryan Wigglesworth conducts and is joined by the outstanding Isata Kanneh-Mason for Dohnányi’s gorgeous piano variations based on a very famous nursery song that deserve to be as well-known as the Rachmaninov/Paganini set. Witty and brilliant, it’s an absolute gem.
