Czech Touches of Music

Czech Touches of Music

The international festival will again resound Prague during the Christmas time.

Dec 16 2020 - Jan 6 2021
The international music festival Czech Touches of Music is among the seven greatest festivals of classical music in the Czech Republic. Its aim is to offer audiences valuable musical experiences while listening to top repertory compositions as well as interesting compositions that are not performed so frequently. The festival’s dramaturgy has a unique concept based primarily on classical music, namely orchestral, chamber and recital works, and ancient music. The popular series is represented by crossover concerts. The festival regularly introduces special programme projects – exclusive concerts as part of the cycles entitled Prague Castle Music, Gems of Russian Music, Music of the V4 Countries, Concert for Children and Parents, and multi-genre projects involving literature, film, the creative arts and architecture.
The inaugural concert is held at Prague Castle on 16 December, on the occasion of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven, and the closing concert is held on 6 January, an important date in Czech history – the anniversary of the signing of the declaration demanding autonomy for Czechs and Slovaks in 1918.

The festival is attended by more than 12 thousand music lovers every year and the Municipality considers it one of the most important festivals of classical music in Prague. It systematically combines culture with tourism, bringing attention to the history and architecture of the premises where its concerts are held, as an inseparable part of the presentation of Prague’s culture.
