Prague Spring exclusively at your home

From 18th May, 2020, the Czech Centres network is offering on-line a renowned international classical music festival the Prague Spring throughout the world

The Prague Spring is the largest and the oldest international classical music festival in the Czech Republic and moreover it belongs to the most renowned and oldest music festivals in the world. In many respects this year’s festival is extraordinary, as it is going on-line. The festival’s director Roman Bělor has remarked: „The Prague Spring has never been so close to you. For the first time in its 75 years history you can enjoy all the festival’s concerts in audio and video at your home.“

This year the Czech Centres and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic have become the festival’s partners for abroad. During the Prague Spring Festival’s period the Czech Centres network is presenting and sharing with the audience abroad the festival’s program including selected performances and concerts through its websites and social networks in particular territories. 

The Czech Centres‘ Director General  Ondřej Černý has commented on the cooperation with the Prague Spring Festival: „This year I’m honoured and pleased to share the delight of the Prague Spring’s concerts, this „family silver“ of Czech culture, with an audience of thousands all over the world in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic.“

In total eleven concerts held in five concert halls in Prague and one concert hall in Brno will be broadcasted live. The opening concert of the Czech Centres network is the music performance by a Baroque orchestra Collegium 1704 and a Baroque choir Collegium Vocale 1704 under the baton of Václav Luks. The concert is being held on Monday, May 18, 2020, at 8 pm CET in a beautiful venue of Prague Crossroads operated in Church of St. Anne. The program is presenting pieces of Baroque music masters as J.S. Bach, J.D. Zelenka or G.F. Händel.     

For the purpose of promoting this year’s festival the Czech Centres‘ Director General Ondřej Černý has interviewed the Prague Spring Festival’s Director Roman Bělor. On a short video the audience will come to know, what Roman Bělor thinks about the present situation, the transformation of the festival to on-line format or the collaboration with Czech Centres.  

Although the festival’s concerts will be broadcasted live, even the audience from remote destinations won’t be deprived of cultural experiences due to the time difference. The audience is having an opportunity to enjoy festival’s program on the websites and social networks of the Prague Spring Festival and Czech Centres Seoul during two weeks after the concert is held.
