EVENING ON THE OCCASION OF J. S. BACH’S ANNIVERSARY
Violin virtuoso Pavel Šporcl will perform a program in honour of music genius Johann Sebastian Bach, since whose death almost exactly 270 years have passed (he died on 28th July 1750), at the Castle Riding Hall. Pavel Šporcl is one of the most sought-after Czech artists. Thanks to his art, distinct personality and unconventional manner, he is acclaimed by listeners of all generations. During his career he has cooperated with many renowned orchestras, given concerts around the world on the stages of famous concert halls. Besides the core classical repertoire, he also presents other genres. In Český Krumlov he will appear in the role of both violinist and conductor. Oboist Vilém Veverka will appear in one of the compositions as the guest of the evening; the soloists will be accompanied by the South Czech Philharmonic.
