In September 1991, in the grand Spanish Hall of Prague Castle, the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra gave this concert to honor the lives of two great composers: Mozart and Dvorak. Held on the 150th anniversary of Dvorak's birthday and marking the bicentenary of Mozart's death, the performance features Mozart's Piano Concerto no. 20 in D Minor with pianist Ivan Moravec as the soloist, and mezzo-soprano Bernarda Fink singing Dvorak's "Biblical Songs."
