Organ solo - Robert Hugo. One of the top Czech organists Robert Hugo graduated among others from the Department of Music Theory of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague, where he also studied organ with Milan Slechta.

As a musician, conductor and music theoretician he specialises in Bohemian and South German Baroque music; he prepared a number of modern premieres, such as a reconstruction of a Baroque opera dealing with the foundation of Prague, or CDs of music by J. D. Zelenka and A. Michna. In 1998 he recorded, for Deutsche Gramophon, the Czech Christmas Mass by the popular Czech Classical composer Jakub Jan Ryba, starring Magdalena Kozena.

We are your guide through Prague classical concerts and opera in Prague.
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.
