About the festival:
This year the festival pays a tribute to one of the greatest composers of post – byzantine Eastern Music, i. e. Petros Peloponnesios, which, in the 18th century, is the equivalent of W. A. Mozart of the Eastern Christianity. As in previous years, the festival will present a wide and varied spectrum of Orthodox music, ranging from the sounds of Byzantine music, Znamenny Chant, through Romanticism (P. I. Tchaikovsky and others), to works by leading contemporary composers such as Arvo Pärt and Alfred Schnittke as well as world premieres of works of young Czech composers – this year these will be Martin Klusák and Jan Trojan.
The concert has no intermission.
