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.
My husband and I loved this special performance and did not want the concert to end, we could easily have sat there a further hour. The musicians were outstanding and the choice of program excellent - I have been humming the music ever since! :-) We liked the insertion of one or two light-hearted musical pieces as well, it was all done very professionally and the musicians were obviously enjoying themselves and had a great musical rapport. The event started on time and no one in the audience had a mobile phone ringing to interrupt the lovely playing. We would love to attend further concerts if we come to Prague again but we live all year normally in Spain. We certainly will recommend your company. We wished that the tickets could have been sent via a link to my mobile phone beforehand, this is my only complaint as we were in a place without a printer (on holiday in a hotel) which meant that we had a walk of over 1 hour each way to get into the old part of Prague and attempt to fin the Via Musica shop in a city we are unfamiliar with, and in horrendous Christmas/New Year crowds. It was an adventure, but we were rather stressed trying to get the tickets and not knowing if the shop would be open because it was so close to the holidays and we figured that the shop would close earlier than normal due to the Public Holiday the following day. Other than that, it was well worth it and we are very happy we saw the show. My husband said it was 'The highlight of our whole holiday in Prague". :-)
Excellent musicians and great music.
