After a tour in Slovenia, Germany and Austria, the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra joyfully welcomes conductor Shiyeon Sung back to the Queen Elisabeth Hall. Liszt found inspiration for Les Préludes in the French poet Alphonse de Lamartine's Méditations poétiques, expressing the overwhelming power of nature and the transience of existence. Liszt translated these ideas into a cascade of intertwining thematic figures. Despite Antonín Dvořák's mastery of dramatic turns, his Sixth Symphony reveals his most optimistic side. Drawing inspiration from Czech folk music, Dvořák incorporates characteristic dance rhythms and melodic twists, showcasing the vibrant spirit of his homeland, though not in direct citation."
