Magdalena will appear within the final concert of the series Helping with the Czech Philharmonic in Dvořák Hall of Prague Rudolfinum. Czech Philharmonic and Czech Student Philharmonic led by Sir Simon Rattle will present songs by Mahler, Berio and Slavonic Dances by Dvořák.
"Last season my long-time colleague and friend, Simon Rattle, conducted the Czech Philharmonic for the first time. He clearly loved the Orchestra and we have managed to persuade him to join Magdalena and conduct this year's Helping with the Czech Philharmonic IV. Given by an orchestra made up almost equally of Czech Philharmonic musicians and members of the Czech Student Philharmonic, the concert is in aid of the Magdalena Kožená Endowment Fund which aims to raise awareness of and support for the education provided by Czech arts schools," said Chief Conductor and Music Director of Czech Phil Semyon Bychkov. "Welcome back, Simon and Magdalena!"
Final concert from the series Helping with the Czech Philharmonic wants to emphasize the importance of regular blood donation. It will also support Magdalena Kožená Endowment Fund and music schools in the Czech Republic.
