As Saturday Market bustles outside, come in for a celebration of Bohemian music. Beethoven’s frothy early Clarinet Trio was written for the Bohemian clarinetist Joseph Beer. Mahler was born in Prague, and to sing his sublime Rückert-Lieder we welcome award-winning mezzo-soprano Marta Fontanals-Simmons. Czech songs by Dvořák and charming cello miniatures by Suk complete this coffee concert programme.
