Old Prague Music Ensemble (string quartet)
Feel free to check the List of Prague concert venues or choose a lovely one day trip out of Prague to some famous Bohemian cities.
Gothic church of St. Martin in the Wall is for its location in Prague centre, pleasantly pure interior and good acoustics a very popular chamber concert venue. The Church of St. Martin in the Wall is a well preserved work of medieval architecture.
Its name originates from the fact that one of its walls bordered directly with the Old Town fortification wall. The Romanesque base from the 12th century was later modified in Gothic style and with some Baroque modifications the church was preserved in its original form. St. Martin used to be a lively center of Utraquist Church, supported by wealthy burghers.
The famous Baroque sculptor Ferdinand M. Brokoff is buried in the Church. Nowadays St. Martin in the Wall belongs to the Evangelical Church and concerts of classical music are held here.
Excellent concert, beaucoup de musicalité, d'écoute et de nuances. Superbe interprétation du répertoire. Bravo aux artistes
Byla jsem již podruhé a vždy to byl krásný zážitek. Vřele doporučuji ☺️
This was a really intimate concert in a small but beautiful church. The programme was excellent and diverse, though more pieces by Czech composers would have, perhaps, made it even better. The quality of the playing was outstanding, as were the acoustics of the church. It was a really special evening.
The music and the venue were absolutely perfect complements to one another. Fantastic!
Stunning musicianship and acoustics. After the concert I researched the musicians, whose names are not provided. The leader if the quartet was superb and I would have loved information about their identities. On later research I learned they are from the Prague Symphony and Czech Philharmonic, and the ensemble has existed for centuries. Sn unforgettable musical experience.
Koncert se mi líbil
Amazing musicians, amazing acoustics in the Church. We were enjoying, many thanks!
The quartet played all too fast. I felt like the 1st violinist just wanted to show his virtuosic capasities. It was at the expense of musicality. Albinoni´s Adagio and Bach's Air should be played at a slow tempo. So, I couldn't enjoy very much. Would not recommend.
Skladba hudebních děl velmi dobrá. Hudebníci hráli skvěle.
We loved the small venue for this small group of skilled musicians, and enjoyed the variety of the short music selections. and the way that the stone space made the sound resonate.
I highly recommend this concert.
A wonderful performance in a charming location.
Albinoni's Adagio was superbly performed with deep emotion. Smetana's Vlatva was wonderfully evocative of the river's eddies and ripples. The first violin was remarkable. I recommend this performance to other visitors.
When I ordered the tickets for our family of four, I was a little worried that the others wouldn't enjoy the concert, as they are not big fans of classical music. However, everyone enjoyed the performance very much. The quartet were not only excellent musically but also very personable and invested a lot of effort and heart into their performance. ... The venue was beautiful, and the soft lighting added to our enjoyment. I personally also very much liked the art exhibition: the paintings of the Passion of Christ with their spiritual emphasis. ... However, I felt sorry for the lady who sat outside in the cold, taking the audience's tickets. I hope you pay her well!!
This was an amazing performance of chamber music. It was towards the more expensive end of the activities I paid to do in Prague (300 Czech) but was definitely worth it! Beautiful surroundings and great acoustics in St Martin in the Wall Church. The only downside was that the performers had to twice pause their performance to ask the reception staff member to stop talking loudly. Definitely recommend attending this concert if you enjoy classical music!
A great performance of amazing musicians with virtuoso performance in a special location with ideal acoustics.
The show was good. There were some classic tunes played. I liked that they played some faster music instead of only slow music.
I would like to emphasize that the performance of the quartet was really good, however, this concert was only a tourist attraction. I was surprised to learn that 'normal' symphonic/chamber music concerts are rather rare in Prague, I was not able to find tickets for one during our 4-night visit, so we attended this concert. Anyway, a great thank you for the musicians; it cannot be easy to play the same selection of music twice a week.
