The closing concert of the IMF Český Krumlov 2020 will belong to pianist Ivo Kahánek and the Czech Philharmonic under the baton of chief conductor and music director Semyon Bychkov. Ivo Kahánek gained a reputation as one of the most impressive artists of his generation who has the gift of being able to immediately make contact with the audience which he can use in compositions ranging from the Baroque to modern times. In 2004 he became the overall winner of the Prague Spring competition. He has performed with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the BBC Proms, among others; Sir Simon Rattle selected him for two performances with the Berlin Philharmonic. In 2018 he received the Classic Prague Award for solo performance of the year. In Český Krumlov he will play Dmitry Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto and Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 will follow.
