The season 2020—21 will be inaugurated by one of the most famous works in the history of music, Handel’s Messiah, and this “messianic” spirit pervades the dramaturgy of the whole concert series. The unconventional programme of the Advent concert will recreate the atmosphere of Italian Baroque Christmas and we shall celebrate the arrival of the New Year with Mozart’s Coronation Mass.


Vivat musica in National Galery

1381349 10152391801845225 9050431840376271664 nThe exhibition Vivat musica! presents the world of music in fine art, from the Renaissance to the present day. The unique display Vivat Musica! will show how the relationship between music and fine art changed over the course of five hundred years in artworks depicting mythological or Christian themes in the Renaissance and Baroque periods, such as portraits of prominent musicians or composers, or in works that integrated musical principles in the 20th century. Music appears in fine art in various genres and contexts – in the Baroque, for example, as depictions of open-air concerts accompanying magnificent garden banquets of aristocratic society. In 19th-century art, the theme is linked with the national revival movement or decadent moods at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. In the 20th century, cubist painters added musical instruments to their still lifes, and today’s artists work directly with sound or its graphic rendering. The exhibition will feature artworks by prominent artists, such as Josef Václav Myslbek, Josef Mánes, Emil Filla and František Kupka.

First guided  tour of the exhibition on 11th May 2014 at 3pm VIVAT MUSICA! with the name of the images through the eyes of a conductor with Václav Luks, conductor Collegium 1704, and Monika Sybolová, curator for education.
