Prague Music Festival 2009

Libor Nováček, featured performer

The 64th Prague Spring International Music Festival

May 12 - June 6, 2009

In 1946 Prague and the whole Czechoslovak Republic celebrated the first anniversary of the end of the Second World War. At the same time, the Czech Philharmonic was celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of its founding, and the Prague Spring International Music Festival was born.

It was the result of almost seventy years of endeavours by people involved in music in Prague, including the German-speaking population, to organize annual music festivals with the participation of top soloists and orchestras from all over the world. Featured perfromers this year include Prague Radio Symphony Orcestra, Bohuslav Martinu Philharmonic, Juan Diego Flórez, Ladislav Doležel, Jaroslav Tuma, Shlomo Mintz, Janácek Chamber Orchestra, Kocian Quartet, Leonidas Kavakos, Jordi Savall, Il Giardino Armonico, Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Hawthorne String Quartet, and Libor Nováček.
