Rudolfinum, Dvořák Hall
The legacy of renowned Czech composer Antonín Dvořák will weave its way through the historical streets and concert halls of Prague, from 7 to 22 September 2014. The Dvořák Prague Festival will see the world’s greatest performers, conductors, and orchestras gather in the Czech capital to perform and honour Dvořák’s very varied oeuvre.

The Dvořák Prague Festival, which has hosted over 100 concerts and attracted over 80,000 spectators since its 2008 inception, is today a key social event in every music lover’s calendar.

It has attracted the crème de la crème of the world of classical music, including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Joseph Calleja (vocal), Filarmonica del la Scala, Daniele Gatti (conductor), Sir John Eliot Gardiner (conductor), Andris Nelsons (conductor), Yannick Nézet-Séguin (conductor), and Nicola Benedetti (violin).

Dvořák (1841-1904) was the first composer to embrace and establish the concept of ‘Czech music’, by incorporating elements of Moravian and Bohemian folk music – what better accompaniment to savour the spirit of Prague?

Antonín Dvořák, praised as Beethoven’s successor by his contemporaries and most famous for Rusalka and New world Symphonie, remains a key representative of Czech culture. His compositions have been performed in the world’s leading concert halls since the 1880’s and his oeuvre encompasses almost all genres of classical music – from piano miniatures to comprehensively-conceived vocal-orchestral compositions lasting the entire evening.
