We launch the 125th Season!

The 125th Anniversary Season of the Czech Philharmonic starts in a big way. Chief conductor Semyon Bychkov will lead the orchestra through two major pieces of the classical repertoire – Dvořák‘s eighth symphony and Shostakovich concerto for piano and trumpet. Solos will be played by Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov and Austrian trumpeter Selina Ott. Opening concerts are dedicated to former chief conductor Václav Neumann, the second one will be broadcasted by Mezzo Live HD.

Following the latest developments, we decided take precautions and divide the orchestra into two halves which will not be able to meet. This will prevent the whole orchestra going into quarantine should that be necessary. We thus had to change the programme of the Opening Concert and replace Mahler’s Symphony No. 5, which requires a large orchestra, with Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8.

The jubilee 125th season in the Rudolfinum will start as planned but special health and safety rules will have to be observed. The maximum capacity of the Dvořák Hall is restricted to 1 000 people, the auditorium will be divided into two sectors. Take a look at details.
