We are introducing the 124th season of the Czech Philharmonic. There are four Czech Philharmonic subscription series in all, offering programmes ranging from Mahler symphonies or major vocal-instrumental works to compositions for chamber orchestra. In series A, B, and C we encounter both the chief conductor Semyon Bychkov and other great figures of the conducting world – David Robertson, James Gaffigan, Giovanni Antonini, and Pablo Heras-Casado. You will encounter a number of world-famous soloists including Lisa Batiashvili, Leonidas Kavakos, Gautier Capuçon, Rudolf Buchbinder, and the sisters Katia and Marielle Labèque. There will also be a large representation of modern works by Czech and foreign composers – music by Henri Dutilleux, Luciano Berio, Steve Reich, Péter Eötvös, and Miroslav Srnka. Throughout the present and following season, the music of Ludwig van Beethoven will be heard on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of his birth. Series K is special, with four concerts of the variable Chamber Orchestra of the Czech Philharmonic under the leadership of one of its concertmasters at each performance.
We reserve the present seats of subscribers from the previous concert season of the Czech Philharmonic until 31 May 2019. Subscriptions purchased in the 2018/2019 season at sales locations of the Colosseum Ticket network must be purchased there again. Subscriptions purchased in this manner cannot be picked up at the Czech Philharmonic Ticket Office in the Rudolfinum.
