Semyon Bychkov conducts Berio and Dvořák — With London Voices Czech Philharmonic

About

Rediscover a classic of Czech music alongside a lesser-heard masterwork by experimental composer Luciano Berio! The concert opens with the Italian's Sinfonia, interpreted with brio by the London Voices and a Czech Philharmonic in high form, under the baton of Maestro Semyon Bychkov. This fascinating choral symphony features eight amplified voices, singing and speaking texts extracted from Claude Lévi-Strauss, James Joyce, and Samuel Beckett—with a second movement in homage to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.—and also quotes musical works by Beethoven, Debussy, Ravel, Stravinsky, Schoenberg, and many other composers in its highly allusive third movement.
