Exclusive recording: Czech Philharmonic and Semyon Bychkov pay tribute to Jiří Bělohlávek

Gramophone Mon 19th June 2017

The Czech Philharmonic play one of Bělohlávek's favourite piece in their first concert since the conductor's death

The Chief Conductor of the Czech Philharmonic, Jiří Bělohlávek, died less than three weeks ago. So loved was Bělohlávek by his orchestra that in their first concert since his death, conducted by Semyon Bychkov, they added a special musical tribute to the late conductor - one of Bělohlávek's favourite pieces – Oskar Nedbal's Valse Triste

The Czech Philharmonic have given us a copy of the live recording of that performance of the Valse Triste, both moving and beautifully played. You can listen to it below:
