It is only natural that Slavomír Hořínka, a finalist of the first competition held by the Czech Philharmonic in 2014, was been commissioned to write a new work. The orchestra’s guest artist Josef Špaček chose Bohuslava Martinů’s Violin Concerto No. 1, and Jakub Hrůša will be conducting Josef Bohuslav Foerster’s Symphony No. 5.
