The Brahms – Dvořák – Janáček concert affords the State Opera
Chorus the opportunity to showcase their skills by performing a repertoire they
are not accustomed to, accompanied by a reduced number of instruments. The
programme features Johannes Brahms’s Vier Gesänge, four romantic songs for
female choir, two horns and harp (1860); Leoš Janáček’s Our Father for
tenor, mixed choir, harp and organ (1901, 1906); and Antonín Dvořák’s Mass
in D major, written upon the request of Josef Hlávka, a renowned architect and
patron of the arts, for the inauguration of the chapel in his Lužany manor
(1887). The mass will be performed in the version with the parts of cellos and
double basses, which Dvořák added later.
