Year of Czech Music 2014

26 JUNE 2014 - 2014 is a remarkable year for Czech music, with over sixty prominent Czech composers, performers and musical organizations celebrating anniversaries – from Antonín Dvořák, Bedřich Smetana, Leoš Janáček, Bohuslav Martinů and Josef Suk to Rafael Kubelík and Milada Šubrtová to the Prague Symphony Orchestra and the Janáček Philharmonic Ostrava. Years ending with the number 4 have been traditionally recognised as years of music since 1924.

The Year of Czech Music 2014 programme has been initiated by the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Education and Ministry for Regional Development with the objective to support projects promoting Czech music in the Czech Republic and abroad.
