Symphony orchestra begins new season with a dedication to Nicolas Winton

The Czech National Symphony Orchestra opened the new 2013/2014 season on Monday night with a Czech premiere of a work entitled Last Train to Tomorrow by the American Composer Carl Davis. The symphony is a tribute to Nicolas Winton who was able to save 600 Jewish children from Czechoslovakia before World War Two by arranging train transports for them to England. The premiere was conducted by the composer, with the vocal accompaniment of the Children’s Opera Prague.
