About the festival:

The international music festival Czech Touches of Music is among the seven greatest festivals of classical music in the Czech Republic. Its aim is to offer audiences valuable musical experiences while listening to top repertory compositions as well as interesting compositions that are not performed so frequently.

The festival’s dramaturgy has a unique concept based primarily on classical music, namely orchestral, chamber and recital works, and ancient music. The popular series is represented by crossover concerts. The festival regularly introduces special programme projects – exclusive concerts as part of the cycles entitled Prague Castle Music, Gems of Russian Music, Music of the V4 Countries, Concert for Children and Parents, and multi-genre projects involving literature, film, the creative arts and architecture.
