With one exception, the suppliers of the works which Prague National Theatre’s chamber orchestra has chosen to play at Chorin are closely connected with the Bohemian capital. Their intention was to write catchy tunes that instantly capture the listener. Josef Mysliveček, in his day, was famous across all of Europe and rose to become the best-paid star of the Italian opera. He had friendly relations with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who was inspired by the Bohemian’s musical inventiveness. Leopold Koželuh was also drawn to Vienna, where he was celebrated as a pianist almost from the start. When Mozart died, he became Chamber Kapellmeister and court composer and gained the reputation of a writing maniac. Contrasting with these artists, the programme also features the Israeli composer Paul Ben-Haim.
