The Royal Czech Orchestra and three of Prague's most acclaimed soloists present program with gems of classical music. The concert takes place at St. Salvator Church, the main church of Klementinum complex.
Royal Czech Orchestra (chamber cast of approx. 8 members)
Marie Fajtová - soprano
Soloist of the National Theatre
Robert Hugo - organ
Baroque music specialist, home organist of St. Salvator Church
Viktor Mazáček- violin solo
Member of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra
The musicians took us on an impressive tour of the musical seasons. The pleasant sound of the Baroque organ has excelled in Bach's compositions, the exquisitely coordinated chamber orchestra portrayed all the layers of emotions, and the beautiful singing of Marie Fajtová was the cherry on the cake.

St. Salvator Church is a part of the former Jesuit College of St. Clement (Klementinum) 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.
The performances were excellent.
The venue absolutely stunning, but we were sat on extremely uncomfortable chairs with no back support. As it was really freezing - not complaining about that - it spoilt it a bit for us.
The concert is lovely. But there should not be any sort of recording. It is very distracting. Hope the organise enforce this.
Fabuleux.. mais 1h c’est trop court.
En revanche il faut bien se couvrir il ne fait pas chaud !
Un pur bonheur ! Merci aux musiciens et à la chanteuse
Koncert byl moc hezký, co se mi nelíbilo, byla organizace vstupenek. Vstupenky jsem měla vytisklé z internetu, ale před vchodem na koncert mi blyo sděleno pořadatelem (asi cizinec, neuměl česky, naštěstí umím anglicky), že si mám vytisklou vstupenku vyměnit za papírovou. Zejména pro cizince to byl zmatek a zdržení, nepochopitelné v dnešní době, kdy papírové vstupenky už skoro nejsou potřeba. Dostali jsme vstupneku bez označení sedadla, následně jsme na koncert byli usazeni na skládací židle. Argumentovala jsem, že na původní vstupence je napsáno, že místa si v daném sektoru můžeme rezervovat stylem kdo dřív přijde, ten dřív mele. Bylo mi sděleno, že to tak není. Nicnéně nakonec to pán vyřešil měli jsme vlastně ve výsledku lepší místa než jsme měli mít, ale příště bych si toto raději ušetřila, jasné označení sedadel už na vstupence a zrušení nutnosti mít další vstupenku na pokladně přímo v kostele by bylo fajn.
A marvellous performance. A perfect repertoire. I highly recommend it.
Překrásné místo, nádherná hudba, skvělý zážitek!
The voice was incredible
The organ was a bit too much
Worth the c band ticket though
An excellent concert, in a stunning venue.
The concert was beautiful. A great assortment of the top classics in everyone's list and done very nicely. We thoroughly enjoyed it
Wonderful performance in gorgeous venue. I’ve never seen musicians playing violins so closely, and it feels magical. I was very focused during the hour of performance and enjoyed every bit of it!
Wonderful event in a splendid setting.
Marvelous combination of strings, soprano and organ.
A highlight of our time in Prague.3Q6p6
For a one-hour concert, the selection of musical pieces was good. The performers were, as a whole, between average to better-than-average. The reason my rating is "Average" and not a higher one is the nature of the compression of the pieces used in order to fit all the pieces into the one-hour program, and the rushed tempi used. For example, while not much violence was done to Vivaldi's Spring and Summer movements of "The Seasons," a normally paced performance of Vltava normally runs about 12 minutes, and in this event, this lovely piece was badly compressed and rushed.
Great Solo artist.
The church acustics were perfect, small intimate setting and great to hear the natural sounds.
Highly recommend you allow time in your visit to do this concert well worth the money and the time.
Less organ music would be better. Chamber orchestra seemed a bit lacking in enthusiasm.
Choose some more unique music, - it didn't feel like most people wanted to hear things they had heard a million times.
Overall very good. Would have liked the orchestra to introduce the song / piece and explain the story behind each piece
Excellent concert, avec des tubes certes mais beaucoup de nuances et d'énergie, preuve qu'lis sont indémodables. Un regret que la chanteuse et l'organiste ne saulent pas à la fin . Mais Vraiment bravo pour la prestation.
Excellent concert in a beautiful old church. Quintessential classical compositions that transcend centuries, and were even familiar to my young adult sons who had never been to a symphony of classical music.
Make sure you take any tickets purchased online to the ticket booth to the right of the main entrance to obtain your “real” tickets, so you don’t have to go stand in another line and miss good seats when you get to the front of the main line up.
Organ parts verry good. Vocal parts not really powerful. Violines average. Too many respectless people in the audience. Making records (movies/pictures) partly by walking around. Orchestra too little for the big church. Too expensive.
Concert in mirror chapel much better.
Enjoyed it very much, the musicians and venue were fabulous. A great memory to take home from Prague.
An excellent performance with front row seating. The performance was delivered very well and it was obvious through the interaction of the performers that they were enjoying being there. Highly recommend
We enjoyed this concert.
Love the passionate performance from the musicians!!
Lovely location inside St Salvador church. All the musicians and the soprano were excellent. Great way to spend an hour and would thoroughly recommend
Very accomplished performance in a beautiful church. Highly recommended
Musical selections were varied and showed the range of the musicians. Soprano was top notch, and organist very talented. Would highly recommend!
Musicians played with spirit. Concert was enjoyable. Venue was beautiful.
Excellent concert. Very high quality musicians, great setting. Well worth attending.
Lovely concert in a gorgeous setting
I would recommend the event. My only complain is the event is not heated as it is announced in the pamphlets, so if you are looking for an indoor event to escape poor weather, you will freeze by being seated for one hour in a cold church.
The performers were top quality and clearly knew how to put on a good show. The time flew by and we couldn’t believe it was already over. World class.
Koncert mi jako celek přišel spíše průměrný, pod moje očekávání. Těšil jsem se na hudebně zajímavou kombinaci varhan, sopranistky a ansámblu. Repertoár byl předveden na technicky velmi dobré úrovni, umělci jsou nesporně profesionálové. Prostor pro zlepšení však vidím zejména v tom, že by akce mohla být více než jen technické provedení sklateb. Chybělo mi v ní větší nasazení umělců, jakási emoce jejich nadšení z vlastního vystoupení. Celkově to pak na mě působilo jako komerčně laděná akce na podporu kostela, než opravdu umělecký zážitek. Publikum bylo dominantně turistické, což mně na dojmu nepřidávalo, ale i tak to nepovažuji za důvod, proč by akce, kterou si turisti zaplatí, neměla být pojata na lepší úrovni. Pokud si lidi něco z takových akcí odnesou, tak jsou to především emoce, které v nich zanechá.
Hezké prostředí, hezký výběr skladeb, dostatečně dlouhé - i krátké - takže možné i pro děti. Moc příjemné. Rozhodně budu opakovat.
Absolutely incredible. Wonderful setting, The performance was wonderful, bringing us to tears with the emotional investment made by the performers. A treasured memory that will stay with us for years.
We really enjoyed the concert. There was a bit of confusion when we tried to get in, having got there early and at front of queue, were told we had to go back to ticketg office and exchange our online vouchers for actual tickets. This was a bit annoying, but worked out well in the end as we ended up in slightly better seats that we had booked. The music was beautiful. The Church was a bit cold, but we appreciated the heated seats! Thank you.
I was not sure what to expect but the performance was outstanding and we were so happy that we attended. The church was a beautiful setting for the performance and for the first time we actually got to hear an organ play. I would say the one hour performance was the perfect time.
A fantastic start to our evening in beautiful surroundings. Excellent music and lovely atmosphere. I would highly recommend this event.
The musicians were all awesome and Maria Fajtova was beautiful with a matching voice. Awesome experience on my first trip to Prague.
Absolutely loved this performance. I could have sat there all eveing listening to the orchestra.
real music in a fantastic place
I enjoyed it very much, the compositions were chosen and executed perfectly.
It was just quite too cold in the church.
Great atmosphere, great artists, great church.
Five Star experience
Beautiful venue. Excellent sound. Fabulous musicians.
The orchestra musicians, organist & soprano were excellent- Ave Maria brought me to tears!
Beautiful music in a stunning video. It would be nice if you asked people not to record on their phones, people on either side of me had phones up recording for 75% of the performance.
Very good music (except the organ stuff), talented musicians and singer.
Great artists and beautiful venue.
Every emotional experience. Especially when the musicians played Vltava.
Très bel ensemble d'artiste généreux
Velmi krásný koncert, výběr skladeb nemohl být lepší a naprosto úžasní hudebníci a zpěvačka. Všem vřele doporučuji.
1) S českou návštěvou se na tomto koncertě asi nepočítá, každý na nás mluvil AJ.
2) Je třeba si poptávat ještě přesné místo vedle v podkladně. Každý nejprve hledá, kde koncert je, nasměrovala nás paní u Klementina na správné místo, čekali jsme na vstup, pak nám mladík u vstupu řekl, že si ještě máme jít poptat do podklady přesné sedadlo. Je to takový divný chaos.
3) A nakonec jsme neměli ani program v ruce k celému koncertu.
Přišlo mi to celé takové uspěchané a vlastně jsem si těch 50 minut koncertu ani moc neužila. A to jsem se velmi těšila.
The musicians put on an excellent performance. Fabulous variety of music and the fact they we're all having fun performing, that extended out into the audience.
I loved the first violin and the soprano
Nikdy jsem neslyšela tak dobré houslové unisono a čisté tóny. Nádhera, velmi povedené, mráz mi běhal po zádech.
What a brilliant way to end our weekend on Prague. An amazing setting with wonderful performers. Particularly enjoyed Ave Maria and Spring and Summer 4 seasons. The organ sounded incredible. Would highly recommend.
Good artista. Nice selection. Though 57 minutes is a bit short.
Very wonderful concert. The Orchestra was playing very Well and the Songs we're nice. Im Not really a Fan of Classic music but i did enjoy. 👍🏻
Wonderful performance!!enjoyed the venue and the music
Really impressed by the Orchestra, excellent show.
I enjoyed this. It’s a beautiful spot to hear some string classics and the soprano was great.
It lacks a few instruments. Since only chords and an organ are played I ask mylsef why not chose less known works that are made for this display of instruments.
Un très beau concert, de grande qualité. Pensez à bien vous couvrir car l’église est froide !
My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed this concert. My partner is the one who likes classical music but I loved this show also.
It was a beautiful show between the music and gorgeous venue.
The performance was professional and although only a small number of instruments, the sound was really good. The soloist and the organist were also polished .
Na nejvyšší úrovni
This was an excellent concert. The venue was amazingly beautiful, the performers were excellent, and the timing was perfect (60 minutes at 7:30pm) for our family to enjoy the music before dinner. Definitely a highlight of our visit to Prague.
Beautiful, angelic and spectacular!
This was an super consert. Good portuar, Good Music and in this Church you have very good acustic for kind of Music.
