Early Evening Concerts • Six early evening concerts


The Early Evening Concerts will include performances of the Prague Philharmonia Wind Quartet, Mahan Esfahani, Iranian harpsichordist living in Prague, with gamba player Hille Perl, laureates of top Czech competitions and cellist Camille Thomas with pianist Lukáš Klánský. You will also see the Czech Philharmonic Wind Harmony and the Graff Quartet.

Early Evening Concerts

The Prague Philharmonia Wind Quintet will introduce itself at the beginning of this series, traditionally set in the Suk Hall. The concert is devoted in part to the birthday of composer Zdeněk Šesták. Among the other artists who are well known to us is the harpsichordist of Iranian origin living in Prague, Mahan Esfahani, who is joining with gamba player Hille Perl in preparing a programme largely devoted to the music of the Bach family. In accordance with tradition, one of the concerts will be reserved for laureates of important Czech competitions. Perhaps something of a surprise for the audience will be the appearance by cellist Camille Thomas, whose partner at the piano will be Lukáš Klánský. Finally, it is worth mentioning the appearance of the Czech Philharmonic Wind Harmony led by Ondřej Vrabec.
