Tuesday, April 30, 1946. On that day, at 8 pm, the hall of the Zlín Grand Cinema heard tones for the first time performed by the newly founded Symphony Orchestra of the Baťa National Enterprise, the first professional symphony ensemble built in Zlín.
At the end of October 2021, the Bohuslav Martinů Philharmonic Orchestra will organize an extraordinary concert to celebrate the 75th anniversary of its founding with the participation of several congratulators, leading Czech performers who have long collaborated with the orchestra and who also declare their warm relationship with the Zlín Symphony Orchestra. The concert will be opened by Petr Wajsar's Zlín Lines, a unique five-part symphonic musical image of iconic Zlín buildings, which the Bohuslav Martinů Philharmonic premiered to great acclaim in January 2019. which will be performed by the excellent Václav Hudeček together with the concert master of the Zlín Philharmonic Ivana Kovalčíková.The late baroque violin opus will be replaced by arias and a duet from Mozart's Don Giovanni in a unique performance by Adam Plachetka and Kateřina Kněžíková. The block of congratulators will be closed by the award-winning Czech pianist Ivo Kahánek with a performance of Richard Addinsell's fresh Warsaw concerto from the 1941 movie Dangerous Moonlight.
The second half of the gala concert will belong exclusively to the Zlín Philharmonic Orchestra. It will open with a selection from Vítězslav Novák's Slovácko Suite from 1903, the composer's impressive impressionist painting of a holiday taking place in a picturesque Horňácko village at the foot of the White Carpathians.
The gala evening will be closed by Maurice Ravel's impressive Bolero, which is a remarkable example of the author's extraordinary instrumental qualities and his exceptional sense of conjuring up various shades of color in the orchestra.
On this occasion, Tomáš Brauner, who worked as the chief conductor of the Zlín Philharmonic until the end of August this year, will take over the baton.
It remains to add that as part of this evening, the Bohuslav Martinů Philharmonic Orchestra will officially present its new double album entitled Zlín Lines, which the orchestra performed together with all the above-mentioned artists during the summer of last year. The Gala Evening program will bring, among other things, a selection of songs from the CD.
