CCMS – Subscription Series
Programme of the 126th season of the Czech Chamber Music Society respects the successful tradition of already established series. Again, you can look forward to concerts at the Dvořák Hall on Mondays and Wednesdays, Early Evening Concerts in the Suk Hall on Tuesdays, and Saturday Matinees at the Liechtenstein Palace. We have now added a new, exclusive recital series, and some of the world’s most illustrious soloists from this country and abroad have accepted our invitations, including cellist Alisa Weilerstein, pianists Rudolf Buchbinder and Ivan Klánský and the world-famous singer Ian Bostridge.
During the 2020/2021 season, the whole world will be commemorating a major anniversary: the passing of 250 years since the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven. Besides his orchestral and vocal masterpieces, he also left us many wonderful chamber music works. The performing of his complete string quartets is actually something like a cycle within all of the cycles, overlapping with all of the concert series, so that all of our listeners and subscribers will get a chance.
