    Pathways from Prague, Program 3

    DVOŘÁK Terzetto in C for two violins and viola, Op. 74
    KAPRÁLOVÁ Two Ritournelles, for cello and piano, Op. 25
    JANÁČEK Fairy Tale, for cello and piano
    DVOŘÁK Piano Quintet No. 2 in A, Op. 81

    Featuring four Tanglewood favorites and the Tanglewood debut of French violist Antoine Tamestit, this final concert of the Emanuel Ax-curated Pathways from Prague series explores chamber music by three Czech composers. Antonín Dvořák’s charming four-movement Terzetto and his Piano Quintet in A, Op. 81, were both composed in 1887 during one of his most fruitful periods: it took him just a week to write the Terzetto and six weeks to compose the much larger Quintet, one of his chamber-music masterpieces. Emanuel Ax and Yo-Yo Ma play works for cello and piano by Leoš Janáček — his rhapsodic, three-movement Fairy Tale — and Vitěslava Kaprálová, who, though she died in 1940 at age 25, had an outsized impact on Czech music. Her brief, energetic Ritournelle was among her last completed works.


    Ticket includes admission to 6pm Prelude Concert.
