Capella Regia Praha & Organ - The ensemble Capella Regia Praha was founded by leading Czech organist Robert Hugo in 1992 and since then has become one of the best known old music ensembles in this country. Its repertoire consists mostly of Czech and Central European music of the 17th and 18th centuries (Michna, Biber, Cernohorsky, to mention only a few), with a special focus on sacred Baroque drama (oratorios by J. D. Zelenka, G. Carissimi, A. Graghi) and their staging.
Capella Regia Praha regularly performs at renowned festivals within Czech Republic and abroad (Prague Spring, WDR Festival Herne, La semaine sainte Caen, Brno Festival of Sacred Music, Concentus Moraviae, Krakow 2000, Old Music in Jaroslaw).
The ensemble’s discography include the bestselling Czech Christmas Mass by Jakub Jan Ryba with Magdalena Kozena, recorded for the Archiv Produktion of Deutsche Grammophon (the recording went platinum in 2003), an extensive set of Adam Michna’s works (Grammy Classic 1993 Award), and a premiere recording of Jan Dismas Zelenka’s oratorium, Penitenti al Sepolcro del Redentore on the Panton label (1995).
There is no intermission.
The concert is free of charge for children under 15 years.

St. Salvator Church is a part of the former Jesuit College of St Clement (Clementinum) by Charles Bridge. Founded in the 16th century, it was completed in the 17th century by famous Italian architect Carlo Lurago and belongs to the most valuable early baroque buildings in Prague. Its architecture was inspired by the main Jesuit church Il Gesu in Rome, a model for many sacred buildings in the baroque era. Today the church belongs to the academic parish.
Tradition of organ concerts in St. Salvator Church is very long. Beautiful (recently restored) organ from the 18th century used to be played by a number of Jesuit composers who worked in the temple, but also by famous composers of 18th century such as Jan Dismas Zelenka or Jakub Jan Ryba. Prague classical concerts in St. Salvator Church gained a great reputation for their artistic qualities. Renowned musicians in the field of early music and beautiful premises of the early baroque church make these organ concerts a pleasant event. St. Salvator (Holy Saviour) Church is established as the first academic parish in the Czech Republic and as a categorial parish. It offers a platform for ecumenical and interreligious dialogue and is open for spiritual seekers and non-active Christians.
