Prague Spring on-line
Eleven concerts will form the basis of the alternative programme for the Prague Spring 2020, which will be broadcast live from five concert halls in Prague and one in Brno. “A solo recital will be given by Canadian violinist James Ehnes, performed exclusively for Prague Spring audiences from the United States. Listeners can also look forward to recordings of legendary festival concerts from previous years, and we’ll be continuously updating and adding to the programme as we go along,” says festival director Roman Bělor. All the concerts can be viewed free of charge on our website www.test.festival.cz; selected concerts will be brought to you by Czech Television and Czech Radio. These festival evenings will be hosted by Ondřej Havelka.
The festival’s pivotal work, Smetana’s My Country, cannot be performed live, nevertheless, on 11 May Czech Television will broadcast a compilation of significant Prague Spring opening concerts from previous years.
