Chron is cut into five pieces

Artists Richard Wiesner and Krištof Kintera used discarded musical instruments that we had exploded during the creation of a spot for the 125th birthday of the Czech Philharmonic to create new works of art. But you won't see Wiesner's Chron in the Rudolfinum anymore. We have cut it into five pieces!

The story of Chron began three years ago. The 125th birthday of the Czech Philharmonic was approaching. As a gift, the spot Connected by Music was created. For its creation, the orchestra used retired instruments from elementary art schools, which were shattered into pieces during the filming. The Philharmonic offered the fragments of the instruments as material for the creation of unique artworks.

You could admire Chron in the vestibule of the main entrance to the Rudolfinum every time you visited the concert. But in the middle of May, we ceremoniously cut it into five pieces with a special saw. Four of them already know their owners, the fifth one is still waiting for its new home. Proceeds from the auctioned pieces will go to support music education.

We are grateful to all our buyers for their support, which allows us to develop the talent so necessary for the mastery of the orchestra.
