With its military bands, dazzling fanfares, and 13 additional brass players, Janáček's Sinfonietta sounds as fresh today as it did at its premiere. Opening the program the Fort Wayne Youth Symphony will play side-by-side the Philharmonic performing two seminal works by fellow countryman Antonín Dvořák, whose lively, folk-like sensibilities defined the language of late-19th-century Romantic music.
