The First Night of the Proms with Jiri Belohlavek

Czech maestro Jiří Bělohlávek conducts his first First Night in a Proms triple celebration marking the launch of his tenure as the BBC SO's new Chief Conductor and of our season-long anniversary explorations of Mozart (born 1756) and Shostakovich (born 1906). Dvorák's Te Deum was the work with which the Czech composer launched his own new position as director of New York's National Conservatory of Music over 100 years ago; it joins his compatriot Smetana's ode to his Czech homeland.
