Tomáš Jamník - Dvořák with Love

It was love that led Antonín Dvořák to compose one of the most famous pieces in classical music: his cello concerto in B minor. Thirty years earlier, the same love inspired him to write his first concerto for cello and piano. Tomáš Jamník, recognized as a specialist of Dvořák’s cello repertoire, is reconstructing the most authentic version of the piece and bringing it to an audience at Trinity Laban’s concert hall, where it will be possible to hear and feel again what young Dvořák felt in 1865.

Tomáš Jamník (b. 1985) is a Czech cellist. He has studied in Prague, Leipzig, and Berlin, where he currently lives. He won an award at the Prague Spring Internation Music Festival in 2006, and was a finalist for the Pierre Fournier Award in 2012. He first performed publically in London in 2013, when he accompanied the world-renowned mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kožená. Jamník was invited to perform as a soloist for the Philharmonia Orchestra in March this year, where he will present Schumann’s Cello Concerto with conductor Jakub Hrůša. Tomáš is acclaimed by critics, especially for his sensitive and lyrical style, complemented by a precise interpretation of works. He is an exclusive recording artist for the label Supraphon.
