This year the festival pays a tribute to one of the greatest composers of post – byzantine Eastern Music, i. e. Petros Peloponnesios, which, in the 18th century, is the equivalent of W. A. Mozart of the Eastern Christianity. As in previous years, the festival will present a wide and varied spectrum of Orthodox music, ranging from the sounds of Byzantine music, Znamenny Chant, through Romanticism (P. I. Tchaikovsky and others), to works by leading contemporary composers such as Arvo Pärt and Alfred Schnittke as well as world premieres of works of young Czech composers – this year these will be Martin Klusák and Jan Trojan.
The concert has no intermission.
Here is the list of all classical concerts in Prague.
The Liechtenstein Palace was built on the grounds of five city houses in 1591 and rebuilt in Classical style in 18th cenutry. The princely family of Lichtensteins gradually lost interest in the Palace and sold it to the Earl of Ledebour. Later on, the Palace housed many different institutions, until finally in 1980´s it was acquired by the Academy of Musical Arts.
It was beautifully reconstructed and adjusted for the purposes of the Academy. Nowadays, the Liechtenstein Palace is literally full of music! The Liechtenstein Palace is protected as a cultural monument of the Czech Republic.
