Great Yarmouth's Edwardian Hippodrome Circus will reverberate again to the sound of one of Europe's finest orchestras in February when the Czech National Symphony Orchestra (CNSO) pays a visit to the town for a concert of classical pieces.
The CNSO, which has emerged as one of the Czech Republic's most brilliant orchestras under the baton of its charismatic leader, Libor Pesek, will be performing on Thursday, February 4, as part of the International Concert Series organised by SeaChange Arts.
With a conducting career spanning 50 years, Pesek was chief conductor and music director of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra where he remains conductor laureate.
A champion of lesser-known Czech composers, Pesek will lead a concert which begins with music by a man considered to be the father of Czech opera, Bedrich Smetana.
