“It is the time of the year to welcome you back to our new season. The result is mosaic of artistic events involving a variety of repertoire and artists who identify with what they interpret. At its heart is the idea that every project is an artistic event that will enrich our lives. It is what you need from us, and what we expect from ourselves: discovery, coherence and quality.”

Semyon Bychkov, Music Director and Chief Conductor

Public dress rehearsals Dress Rehearsals

Dress Rehearsals • Public dress rehearsals

In the 125th season, we will offer you nine of the very popular public dress rehearsals. One of the Czech Philharmonic musicians will do a short introduction before each dress rehearsal which is then completely in the hands of the conductors. They may stop the music at any point and give feedback to the musicians or rehearse selected parts repeatedly.

Four afternoon concerts Advent Concerts

The 125th season will only have four of the popular Advent concerts held in the Rudolfinum’s Suk Hall on Advent Sundays at 3 pm. But their exciting programmes and performers will certainly offer you the best of the chamber ensembles of Czech Philharmonic musicians and their guests.
