Alfonso Scarano - whipping up a nice batch of up-and-comers.

Over to Prague this week for a concert held this past Friday (the 15th), featuring winners of the Czech Radio International Competition in a program of Vivaldi, Bach, Mozart and Haydn. The concert features winners, Veronica Hrdovo, Guitar - Julie Svecena, Violin and Anastasia Vorotnaja, Piano with the Czech Radio Symphony conducted by Alfonso Scarano. As always, the concert is complete, with the first half (Vivaldi and Bach) on the top player and the second half (Mozart and Haydn) on the bottom. Announcements are in Czech, but not a whole lot.

Here's the program:
Live concert of laureates from the International Radio Competition Concertino Praga 2010 from the Bethlehem Chapel in Prague. Veronica Hrdovo soloists (guitar), Julie Svěcená (violin), Anastasia Vorotnaja (piano), Russia. Radio Symphony Orchestra. Conductor Alfonso Scarano. Margaret Vejvodová , announcer. 1. Antonio Vivaldi: Concerto for Guitar and Orchestra in D major. -2. JS Bach: Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in A minor BWV 1041st - 3. WA Mozart: Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No. 23 in A major K 488th -4. Joseph Haydn: Symphony No. 45 in F sharp minor, Hob I/45. Farewell. (134min.)

Anastasia Vorotnaja plays the Mozart Piano concerto - they still make child prodigies these days.

This concert definitely ranks high on the Anti-Road Rage Wednesday charts.
