Besední dům, 7:30pm
The second subscription series at the Besední dům, characteristically called “Classical and modern”, connects music of earlier periods with (post-)modern music, the latter mostly having proven its worth on the concert stage (it is therefore also classical). Music from four centuries (from the Baroque era to the present) is introduced in fresh, sometimes surprising, but always carefully conceived combinations; beyond providing an aesthetic experience, this allows the audience to understand the music better in its historical context. Thus, the series affords a new perspective on well-known works, and permits the audience to observe what is happening in the world of music at home and abroad. Pre-concert talks, with a glass of wine, will be given in the director’s lounge at 6:15pm.
