An intoxicating song cycle Shéhérazade on poems by Tristan Klingsor comes from the early period of Ravel’s oeuvre. Its origination was inspired by the eponymous suite by Rimsky-Korsakov which enchanted the French author with its exotic atmosphere.
It was not by chance that both works have appeared on the programme of the festival concert of the Janáček Philharmonic Ostrava, which will be led by another Venezuelan festival guest Domingo Hindoyan who is a sought-after conductor on opera and concert stages. The soloist of the night will be Kateřina Kněžíková, the laureate of numerous awards: we can mention the Classic Prague Awards (2018), Thália Awards (2019) as well as a successful guest appearance at the world-famous Glyndebourne Festival.
