Pin It


The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra's getting into the music of Dvoák in a big way this year. The RPO opened the season with the "New World" Symphony, and this Sunday, it opens the Sunday Matinees series at Hochstein Performance Hall with the Seventh Symphony — his most ambitious and perhaps greatest symphonic work. The program, conducted by Music Director Ward Stare, is titled "Zest of Czech," and it does check off the Czech-composer boxes. There's a bit more Dvoák with "Silent Woods," a beautiful short work for cello and orchestra, which features the RPO's own Lars Kirvan as soloist. And the rest is indeed zesty, with works Smetana and Janáek also on the bill.

Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra will present "Zest of Czech" on Sunday, October 7, 2 p.m. at Hochstein Performance Hall, 50 North Plymouth Avenue. $24-$38. 454-2100.
