Conductor Jiří Rožeň with the National Belgian Orchestra

Talented Czech conductor, National Belgian Orchestra and The Snow Maiden by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky – on 20 and 21 December at 6 pm Jiří Rožeň and Belgian musicians will perform their interpretation of the graceful piece composed by the world-known Russian composer.


During two concerts Jiří Rožeň will conduct the National Belgian Orchestra performing The Snow Maiden by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. The leading representative of romanticism composed the music based on the work by the famous playwright Alexander Nikolayevich Ostrovsky in 1873. The moving story about the daughter of frost and spring – usually portrayed as a beautiful young lady with white skin like winter – comes from Russian folklore and in the course of time the storyline has gained various forms and changes. The Tchaikovsky's composition is based on more traditional folk concept and thanks to the author's impressive combination of different instruments evokes a truly winter fairy-tale atmosphere.


Jiří Rožeň (*1991) studied conducting at conservatoires and universities of Prague, Salzburg, Hamburg, Zürich and Glasgow. The highlights of the 2018/19 season included concerts with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic or Ulster Orchestra etc. As a passionate and knowledgeable advocate of Czech music, he regularly presents standard Czech repertoire, as well as music by Antonín Dvořák, Bedřich Smetana, Bohuslav Martinů, Josef Suk, Leoš Janáček, Viktor Kalabis and Miloslav Kabeláč. He is considered one of the most promising and talented conductors of the young generation.
