Jakub Hr?ša To Return To The New York Philharmonic

Jakub Hr?ša will return to the New York Philharmonic to conduct Janá?ek's The Cunning Little Vixen Suite (arranged by Charles Mackerras); Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 3, with Simon Trp?eski as soloist; and Rimsky Korsakov's Scheherazade, featuring Concertmaster Frank Huang in the concertmaster solos, Thursday, January 10, 2019, at 7:30 p.m.; Friday, January 11 at 2:00 p.m.; and Saturday, January 12 at 8:00 p.m.

Frequent collaborators, Jakub Hr?ša and Simon Trp?eski gave a critically acclaimed performance of Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 3 with the Los Angeles Philharmonic in 2013, of which the Los Angeles Times wrote: "Hr?ša proved an engaging maestro.... Trp?eski is a remarkable pianist, smartly blending restraint, sense of tonal color and knowing when and how much to unleash bravado, in measured doses." Simon Trp?eski won the Diapason d'Or award for his 2017 recording of Prokofiev's Piano Concertos Nos. 1 and 3. The Guardian wrote: "In the hands of Simon Trp?eski both really crackle: fiery articulation, brazen rhythms, an ability to navigate corners with a swagger that feels sturdy and nimble at once."

Jakub Hr?ša led an acclaimed performance of Janá?ek's The Cunning Little Vixen at Glyndebourne in 2016, of which The Times wrote: "The drama is magnificently focused by Jakub Hr?ša 's conducting ... Hr?ša finds countless absorbing details and treats the whole score ... as one luscious tone poem."
