This year's concert at the Mercedes Forum is dedicated to the music of leading High Baroque representative, Johann Sebastian Bach

The Czech National Symphony Orchestra will perform compositions featuring performances from outstanding soloists. This is an opportunity for audience members to surrender to Bach’s distinguished melodies, which connoisseurs deem as unparalleled in the composer’s work; something which is especially true of the violin double concerto. The top quality acoustics of the venue also promise to deliver an exceptional experience to all those in attendance.

  • Concerto for 2 violins and strings in D minor 
    J. S. Bach
  • Jesus bleibet meine Freude

The CNSO has gained a position among both Czech and Europe’s top symphonic ensembles. Renowned for its versatility, the orchestra presents annually a broad program ranging from classical music concerts through contemporary genre, film scores, jazz, or musicals. In its new era, The Czech National Symphony Orchestra is also organizing summer Prague Proms Festival which annually attracts the audience for presenting greatest international performers.

Such composers, conductors, and performers as Ennio Morricone, Lalo Schifrin, James Morrison, Branford & Wynton Marsalis, Pino Donnagio, Giuliano Taviani, José Carreras, Danny Elfman, Vince Mendoza, Giuseppe Tornatore, Carl Davis repeatedly come back to Prague to either record with the orchestra or perform in the beautiful Smetana Hall of Prague´s Municipal House, the home concert stage of the orchestra.

The Czech National Symphony Orchestra was established in 1993 by trumpet player Jan Hasenöhrl. A spiritual father at the birth of the CNSO was the legendary conductor Zdeněk Košler. In the year 1996, the American Paul Freeman took over as Chief Conductor, and remained in this position for fantastic ten years. At the beginning of the year 2007, Maestro Libor Pešek was named the Chief Conductor and as of spring 2019, the role was passed onto American conductor Steven Mercurio (former pupil of Leonard Bernstein and a fantastic musician). We can surely look forward to some exciting projects!
