Prague Spring exclusively at your home

From 18th of May 2020 the Czech Centres will offer live streams from the Prague Spring International Music Festival.

Prague Spring International Music Festival is festival with the longest tradition in the Czech Republic. For the first time in its 75-year history the Prague Spring International Music Festival finds itself in a situation where it will be unable to present its concert programme as planned, and this despite several years of preparation to ensure that the festival is all set to go, months ahead of schedule. "The Prague Spring has therefore decided to seek an alternative so that music may continue to bring hope to its listeners during this troubling situation", says festival director Roman Bělor.

This year, the Czech Centres together with the Ministry of the Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic are partners of the festival. All Czech Centres across the world will present and share on their websites and social media the program of the festival inclusive the live streams of the concerts.

"It is honour and pleasure to collaborate with the Ministry of the Foreign Affairs in the Czech Republic and present the experience of concerts from this year's Prague Spring Festival to the audience in the whole world," says the director of the Czech Centres Ondřej Černý.

Eleven concerts will form the basis of the alternative programme for the Prague Spring 2020, which will be broadcast live from five concert halls in Prague and one in Brno. A solo recital will be given by Canadian violinist James Ehnes, performed exclusively for Prague Spring audiences from the United States. The opening concert for the Czech Centres Network will be the performance of the ensemble Collegium 1704 and Collegium Vocale 1704, led by Václav Luks. This concert is scheduled for 18 May at the Prague Crossroads venue. The program includes repertoire from Johann Sebastian Bach, Jan Dismas Zelenka and Georg Friedrich Händel.

All concerts will be available also after the live stream for another 2 weeks at the website of the festival.
