If you wish to be impressed by an astonishing atmosphere of a monumental Gothic temple, visit the Church of Our Lady before Tyn, a spiritual center of the Prague Old Town with rich and eventful history. Originally, a small church was standing at the gate of "Týn", called also Ungelt, the foreign merchants court serving their community.
In the 14th century it was replaced by a magnificent temple, which became a counterpart to the Cathedral of St. Vitus at Prague Castle. In the Hussite times Tyn church was the most important church in town.
After 1620, the country was re-catholicized and the golden chalice of Utraquists adorning the facade was ripped off. The golden chalice was melted down and its gold is now shining around the statue of the Madonna. Both exterior and interior of the church are decorated with unique works of art: passion scenes on the tympanum of the north portal, altar paintings by the renowned Czech Baroque painter Karel Škréta and his contemporaries, pewter Gothic font and a unique Renaissance tomb of the famous Danish astronomer Tycho de Brahe.
Concerts are held in the Tyn church only sporadically, making use of the oldest organ in Prague (built by Johann Heinrich Mundt in 1673). Its unique sound attracts experts from around the world.
Thank you for a lovely evening
Fabulous! A real treat
Great concert, nice music. Great artists.
Awesome performance by the excellent artists
The musicians were excellent. The singer was just an example. However, the echo of the church did not help on the quick changes of the music, specially in pieces like "the four seasons" where the fast music from violins demand for almost no echo.
Well organized and fantastic event. Good choice of classical pieces played in a unique church.
Very good performers and a good selection of music and composers.
I was at the concert with my music teacher and I must say we were surprised by their playing skills. It was wonderfull and we both really enjoyed it. The whole atmosphere was breathtaking. Highly recommended concert.
Concert was very high level .i can say that all the musicians did very good job and played very well,especially the organ and soprano with the accoustics in such big beautiful church. We re going again next time when we come to prague again
Absolutely amazing. The musicians and venue was magnificent!!
Excellent performance, very good program.
Lovely setting, great acoustics and beautifully played classical music
Not worth for the money. Performance not special, mediocre. The order is not following the program on the paper. Probably just attraction for tourists who want to have experience of an classic orchestra .
Pleasant selection of light classics. The ten members of The Prague Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra played well together although the first violins were too quiet and weer dominated by the other strings. The soprano was well below acceptable and should not have been singing. The organ music was poor. A very average performance targeted at passing tourists.
Excellent musicians. Varied program had something for everyone. Enjoyed sitting close to performers near front. Highly recommended concert.
A very enjoyable evening with very talented musicians and some spectacular music. The small intimate nature of this venue (in a church) and superb acoustics added to the atmosphere with close up views of the musicians as they performed various popular pieces of music. Our choice of VIP seats was worth the extra money due to our closeness to the orchestra and enhanced views. As I said, an enjoyable evening and well worth the money.
An enchanting and exhilarating evening. The church is incredibly beautiful inside and was the perfect place for an intimate and exciting evening of music.
Too normal, too expensive
Lieu superbe. Concert d’1h10 : violonistes, orgue et chant. A voir
We heard some wonderful music, while sitting in a phenomenal venue. A great experience.
Outstanding performance! Loved the gorgeous church setting with top notch talent! Thank you!
The string chamber players were of high quality, and overall a pleasure to listen to. However, the concert would have been better, if they were raised up a few feet so as to be visible to more than the front rows; and if more than strings were present in the chamber orchestra (Beethoven's 5th, and Ma Vlast sound rather empty otherwise). The organ solos, while good, were unusual in that the organ (and organist) were behind, and out of view above the audience, which gave the pieces a background, interludal feeling. Finally, it was a little distracting to have various soloists pack their instruments and jackets, and quite noticeably walk back through the church and audience, mid way through the next pieces.
Amazing performance of the musicians and the soprano in a perfect ambience. The extra price for sitting in the front rows worth it for sure.
All the musicians were excellent, and the venue allowed for a very intimate experience for the audience. We loved it!
Très bonne interprétation de plusieurs extraits connus par les musiciens à corde
3 extraits d’orgue magnifiques
La cantatrice était très bien
This was an excellent concert in a beautiful setting. The musical performances were superb. I would highly recommend this concert and this venue. You will not be disappointed.
A wonderful concert in a fabulous location! We enjoyed it very much.
I love to come to Europe and listen to classical music in churches. It's one of my favorite things to do and I was not disappointed in this performance! In fact, I would have to say it was The top classical concert in a church that I've ever attended!! The music was beautifully performed and the acoustics in the church or unparalleled. You felt like you were in the music. I wish I could go again tonight!!
What a fantastic concert! The location and orchestra were second to none. I would 100% recommend this concert - price was amazing - a must see experience when visiting Prague. VIP seats were great second row heard and saw it all.
We enjoyed this concert very much. The musicians were excellent, the concert selections were interesting and varied, and the venue was beautiful and had wonderful acoustics.
Les musiciens étaient de grande qualité et la programmation également.
Mention spéciale aux violonistes de véritables virtuoses.
The beautiful Gothic setting of the Chrám Matky Boží před Týnem combined with a beautiful ensemble of Pianists, the soulful and sonorous voice of the soprano, the humbling sound of the organ and the beautiful humming of the Viola all culminated into a beautiful experience, one that I would remember!
There is no enough words the describe the experience! We will never forget it! It was a highlight of our trip to Prague. Performers were simply stunning! The program was excellent. And, the most impressive was to listen to the magnificent organ!!!!
Замечательный концерт, сопрано и орган
Magnifique concert dans un lieu unique
sound was very good and music was lovely
My family loved the concert! Amazing church, incredible performers, beautiful music and excellent price.
Beautiful concert in gorgeous surroundings.
This was the main event in our week long holiday in Prague. Truly spectacular. Impressive sound of the orchestra, who played with great joy and unision. Special praise goes to the solo violinist. Thanks for making our Saturday night an unforgettable one.
The entire event was superior from the setting to the skills of the musicians. Hearing such beautiful music in an intimate setting is a unique experience. I recommend this event to others without reservation.
Wonderful concert in the most beautiful church.
It would be great if someone could introduce the performer and the songs they performed.
The musicians were very good!
The place is wonderful for classic music
The places we sat, weren't good, because we just could hear the music. The tickets were the cheappest, but if there's a place that you can't see who is playing, I think it should better not be sold!
The staff could be more polite with the public. Sometimes they were a little bit rude.
Fantastic show! The place, the concert, the sound and the singer were amazing! If I come back in Prague, I will reserve again a concert like this one!!!
