Enjoy classical concerts in the most beautiful Prague concerts venues
The synagogue got its name from the Moorish style, in which it was in 1868 built on the site of the original synagogue – so called Altschul - from the 12th century. Exotic style, inspired by famous Alhambra, emphasized the reformist character of the new synagogue, which belonged to German-speaking reform Jews.
The building was designed by Josef Niklas and Jan Bělský, the remarkable interior by Antonín Baum and Bedřich Münzberger. František Škroup, the composer of the Czech national anthem, served as organist here in 1836-45 (i. e. still in Altshul). The synagogue now belongs to the Prague´s Jewish Museum, it houses part of the exhibition, and popular concerts of classical and sacred music often take place here.
Very nicely attended and ran very smooth and on time. We were very pleased at the amount of vocals offered for this performance. A great blend of musical selections for the time allocated. I would highly recommend this concert to anyone considering attending. Well done
Le lieu est très sympa, petite salle, proche des musiciens, public en nombre limité. Nous pensions assister à un répertoire classique, c'était en fait un mix avec du classique mais aussi des musiques de films, jazz et autres. Soprano très bien.
krásny zážitok, výborný výber programu, profesionálne prevedenie tak zo strany orchestra, ako aj speváčky
5 incredibly talented professional musicians and a lovely soprano performed a wide variety of genres to suit every taste.
Much better than anticipated, lovely setting in the Maisel Synagogue with great acoustics.
Well worth the price paid, highly recommended.
Skvělé výkony všech účinkujících, mimořádný zážitek
very nice evening
outstanding musicians and singer
I highly recommend :)
But would have appreciated a program of the pieces being played or an introduction of the chosen pieces. Excellent performance but too short.
Un concert d’une heure ! Formidable
Très beau concert dans une petite synagogue au centre du quartier Josefov. Les 5 violonistes et la chanteuse ont revisité quelques standards de la musique classique mais aussi des chants juifs. Même les néophytes apprécieront. L'horaire est parfait (18h) À faire!
Delightful concert! Broad range of music. The soloist was outstanding!
Venue was perfect.
The ensemble included five strings and one vocalist, snd they played an eclectic, 60-minute assortment of classics, Broadway tunes and more. (You will not hear the full Carmina Burana.) The arrangements are good, the musicians and vocalists are talented, and the setting is gorgeous. A very entertaining concert.
UN POCO BREVE EN CONCIERTO, EL EL PROGRAMA PONÍA QUE CANARÍADOS SOPRANOS Y SOLO UNA CANTÓ
concert très bien, on ne voit pas trop bien les musiciens cachés par une barrière.
It was a very joyfull concert, the singer and the instrumental cinquet were excellent.
We enjoyed the concert very much. The synagogue had amazing acoustics and the musicians were very good. We came with a young child so the length of the concert was great as well as the programme with very popular classic tunes
Concert magnifique dans un cadre superbe. Nous avons apprécié la qualité et la variété des pièces jouées lors de ce concert. Une excellente façon d'approcher la musique classique et moderne pour les neophytes que nous sommes. Un de nos meilleurs moments à Prague.
Goid selection of music. Soloist was outstanding but the chamber group more ragged. The cellist was too dominant.
Ma note serait plutôt "bon" ,ce n'était pas médiocre , ni très bon,la cantatrice a une très belle voix et chante différents registres avec une belle puissance,elle permet de remonter le niveau de mon appréciation
Très belle soirée. Talent exceptionnel, chaleur et proximité.
Superb ensemble. Passionate performances in an incredibly beautiful, poignant setting.
Soloist soared to the highest notes effortlessly, rendering the songs with charm and wit.an utterly delightful evening, not to be missed.
Úžasné místo a velmi profesionální projev jak orchestru, tak sólistky M. Šrůmové vytvořily z tohoto koncertu nezapomenutelný zážitek. Díky za to.
Première fois pour moi et je peux dire que j'ai été comblé. Le cadre est somptueux et les musiciens ainsi que la soprano sont impressionnants.
Fabulous venue great acoustics. Ideal for a snapshot of different genres of music without sitting through an entire opera.
Un concert d'un très bon niveau (notamment la soprano) rendu encore meilleur par la beauté du lieu et sa très bonne acoustique .
Par contre, et de façon générale, je suis moins enthousiaste concernant l'accueil de la population de Prague (commerçants, restaurateurs, hoteliers...) qui se révèlent majoritairement exécrables avec les touristes !
The venue is spectacular - beautiful with great acoustics. The musicians were all great, and Carmina Burana has a beautiful voice that truly sounds like a musical instrument.
The songs and the flow of the program were selected with a good taste. The musicians were excellent although the soprano sounded not all the time aligned with the rythm of the music.
This was the second time I was priveleged to attend the Czech Collegium event t the Spanish Synagogue. This event is seamless from beginning to end. The music and vocals hypnotize you into a state of beauty.
Amazing concert, beautiful music and venue. A very special experience.
This was a wonderful performance, and we are very happy that we went. The musicians and the vocalist were great, and the acoustics in the building were so lovely. The amount of time for the show was very good for us.
Nous conseillons fortement ce concert dans un lieu magnifique. Les musiciens et la soprano nous ont fait vivre un moment très agréable, malheureusement trop court.
Boléro and carmina burana were played by 4 musicians
I was disppointed and it was very expensive for this kind of concert
Great location and excellent performance by the artists. I wished the concert would have been a bit longer than just an hour.
We booked this concert from Scotland in advance of our trip to Prague. Found it easy to book and pay online. Thoroughly enjoyed the concert which had a really good mix of music genres. A nice length of concert at one hour long although I could have listened for much longer!
Outstanding performances from the musicians and Soprano soloist. Varied and interested programme. Would highly recommend.
Excellent evening. Thank you
This was our first venture in to light classical music. We were not disappointed. Most people would be familiar with the majority of the selected music - thus our choice. Venue was stunning. Acoustics, fabulous. Bolero - the performance was breathtaking. Disappointed that some patrons chose to disregard the signs saying no photographs and no recordings thus causing distraction for those around them.
Amazing accustic. Concert is a very greate. Many thanks.
Sure, if possible, will repeat.
Super concert qui correspondait à nos attentes, d'excellents musiciens et cantatrice
The musicians were talented and energetic--the soloist, the base and the first violin stood out as excellent. The program of music was chosen well, the combination of Spanish pieces and Jewish traditional pieces fit the venue. The one piece that did not fit very well was the show tune from Evita the movie--not really in the same class and category as the rest of the music, neither Jewish nor Spanish, and it did not make sense with the other pieces in the program.
Not only did the Czech Collegium perform Carmina Burana and Bolero but also performed a mixed of other songs. Enjoyable event!
