A brilliant symphony concert featuring the two most popular pieces by Antonín Dvořák and other works. The optimism of the early 20th century is contrasted with critical tones from the present.

An admiration of America’s progressiveness shines through in Dvořák’s captivating music, while Honegger immortalised the Pacific steam locomotive in a symphonic poem. However, Jürg Halter’s contemporary poetry strikes a more sceptical tone. The Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich led by Paavo Järvi open a festival that ponders life now and in the future.
After the concert, guests are invited to a party in the Opera Bonn foyer bar with DJ Tereza!
