The final concert of the Concertino Praga 2023 festival performed by the competition laureates

17. leden 2024

The laureates of this year’s Dvořák Radio Competition performed in the Knight’s Hall at the château in Jindřichův Hradec: Margaryta Pochebut (violin), Denis Stefanov (piano), Fabian Johannes Egger (flute), Adam Znamirovský (piano), Duo Comenius (clarinet and piano), the Florestan Piano Trio and Duo Jaklová-Mráček. The moderator was Jan Trojan. The concert was broadcast live from 7 pm on Friday 22 September.

Concertino Praga does not “merely” entail the renowned international radio competition, but also the associated South Bohemian festival, which was established in 1968 by the composer Viktor Kalabis and his wife, the harpsichordist Zuzana Růžičková, who loved South Bohemia very much. The pearls of this region, which the most successful participants at the 57th year of the competition performed at, were Český Krumlov, Tábor, Bechyně and Jindřichův Hradec at the end, as is now traditional.

Michnov’s well-known song Nebeští kavalérové also known as Andělské přátelství is the theme tune of both the competition and the festival. And this year’s participants at the Concertino Praga South Bohemia Festival Concertino Praga, which is known for its very relaxed and truly friendly atmosphere at the turn of the year, will no doubt also establish lifelong friendships.
