This event is organised as part of the YEAR OF CZECH MUSIC 2014 programme

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.
