The programme is based on a musical part but also on a spoken word that will be given in Czech language only. The programme will not be supplied with English subtitles.
From the treasure-trove of European Romantic music, we have chosen compositions (or parts of them) inspired by stories. Many of the stories are big and dramatic, but some are even quite funny. Each composer tells a story in his own way, but at the same time we discover the diversity of national tastes, fragrances, and colours depending upon whether the composer is Italian, French, German, Czech, Norwegian, or Russian.
Our concerts come with commentary; discussing the music are the conductor, the moderator, the soloists, members of the Czech Philharmonic Youth Orchestra, and sometimes even the audience.
