Josef Špaček – violinist and associate artist of the Czech Philharmonic – rehearses the Allegro vivace from Dvořák’s Serenade for Strings with students of the Royal Academy of Music.

This video is the first play-through of the piece in the rehearsal, which you can contrast to the final play-through in the next video on the playlist [also below].

Špaček leads the Royal Academy students in an all Dvořák concert on 23 October 2018 as part of Czech Week in London marking the 100th anniversary of the founding of Czechoslovakia.
