Czech National Symphony Orchestra
Zdenek Fibich was one of the most important Czech composers of the second half of the nineteenth century, after his Czech predecessor Smetana, and near contemporary, Dvorak. His Symphony No.2 in E flat major, Op.38 is one of his greatest orchestral works, holding in perfect balance the dual influences of the Czech Nationalist School (and particularly Dvorak) as well as Austro-German models such as Schumann, Weber and Wagner. Most of the main themes derive from some of his own piano pieces but they are integrated and developed in masterly fashion.
At Twilight is a lusciously scored orchestral piece, whilst the Idyll is gently melancholic.
Marek Stilec works with Czech Television and Czech Radio and his recordings have also been broadcast by the BBC.
