"I was saved by music," wrote Czech composer Josef Suk of his Asrael Symphony, a work born out of the loss of his teacher and father-in-law, Antonin Dvorak, in 1904, and of his wife in 1905. This late-Romantic masterpiece, named for the angel of death, draws also on Bohemian folk music and covers an extraordinary emotional span. The concert also features Nikolai Demidenko in Liszt's thrilling First Piano Concerto.
