This orchestral package at Besední dům showcases the music of four centuries (the eighteenth to the twenty-first) with inspirational connections made between the music of earlier periods and (post-)modern music, mainly music already proven on concert stages (and so also already considered classics). Thus in these programmes Johannes Brahms “meets” Samuel Barber and contemporary Czech composer Michal Nejtek; Baltic composers Bronius Kutavičius and Pēteris Vasks are juxtaposed with Finnish classical composer Jean Sibelius; Antonín Rejcha and Camille Saint-Saëns contrast with Jan Novák and Darius Milhaud; while Johann Sebastian Bach (in Reger’s arrangement) and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart are played alongside Igor Stravinsky and Georgian, Giya Kancheli, etc.
