Workshop
České fagotové kvarteto
Czech Bassoon Quartet

Where can you find bell, a boot, a wing, and a crook all in one place? That’s right, on a bassoon! You will enjoy the sounds that this little-known instrument makes! And who will be brave enough to try blowing a note on one?

Prague Cello Quartet
Prague Cello Quartet

Did you know that to make a cello, you need a part of a horse? Or that cello players often suffer from painful “tennis elbow”? Our musicians will reveal everything to you about their instruments, and they will also play lots of pieces ranging from the classics to popular songs!

Kvarteto lesních rohů
Horn Quartet

The horn is not the highest pitched brass instrument, but it often carries the melody. You will get to hear for yourself all of the things that this fascinating instrument can do – and it definitely is not just for hunters to frighten deer and hares!
