American Ouverture - Jiří Gemrot

Jiří Gemrot - Americká předehra

The symphonic piece the American Overture was written towards the end of the year 1996. Commissioned by the conductor Paul Freeman, it was premiered by this very conductor first with the Czech National Symphonic Orchestra in Prague, and later with Chicago Sinfonietta in an orchestral concert Chicago.

The music, lively in pace and impressive, corresponds with the intentions of the commissioner; as for its form, the composition applies and expands on the principles of the sonata form. The overture has also been recorded for the Czech Radio by the Czech Radio Symphonic Orchestra and the conductor Ondřej Kukal.
