"On the verge of greatness" - Jakub Hrůša

by Philharmonie Luxemburg

In 2011, Gramophone named him as one of ten conductors "on the verge of greatness"! Jakub Hrůša is Music Director and Chief Conductor of the Prague Philharmonia, Music Director of the Glyndebourne Tour, and Principal Guest Conductor of Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra.
Jakub Hrůša explains us the challenge of conducting three very different orchestras and the difficulty of being guest conductor.
He also briefly describes Rêverie by Scriabine, the concerto for violon and orchestra by Shostakovich and Borodine's second symphony.
