Juanjo Mena will make his debut with the Czech Philharmonic on New Year’s Day, conducting gala performances at the Rudolfinum in Prague. The orchestra’s prestigious New Year concerts, which were led last year by Maestro Manfred Honeck with an Austrian themed programme, will this year include works by Manuel de Falla, Joaquín Rodrigo and Xavier Montsalvatge. Mena and the Czech Philharmonic will be joined by guitarist Pablo Sáinz Villegas and mezzo-soprano Clara Mouriz; between them they will be sure to bring some Spanish warmth to a cold New Year’s Day in Prague. The evening performance will be broadcast live on Czech national television and radio.
