The Brno Philharmonic is embarking on a ten-day tour of the United States. The orchestra, which last performed in North America nearly 50 years ago, will play seven concerts at seven different locations. The tour will kick off with a performance of Philip Glass’s symphony No 12 called Lodger in Carnegie Hall in New York City. I discussed the details with the philharmonic’s managing director Marie Kučerová.

“We performed this symphony already at the Prague Spring Festival in 2021 and also at the Moravian Autumn Festival in Brno. We also recorded this symphony for our own label, which was nominated for the International Classical Music Awards.

So we are very glad that we can bring this symphony to New York, because it is going to be the New York premiere and we very much hope that the performance will take place in the presence of the composer himself.”
