Laureates of Concertino Praga 2019 performed in South Bohemia
The laureates of Concertino Praga 2019 performed to an audience in Český Krumlov, Bechyně, Třeboň and Jindřichův Hradec.
A two-week stay of the laureates in the Czech Republic is an annual highlight of the competition. They started with rehearsals for a major concert in Rudolfinum where the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra accompanied the soloists under the baton of Marek Šedivý. Some pictures from Rudolfinum are available here.
After the unique experience of a sellout crowd applauding in Rudolfinum the laureates moved to Český Krumlov where the South Bohemia Festival of Concertino Praga started for the 53rd time. In the photographs from Lucie Pelikánová you can enjoy the festive atmosphere of the concert taking place in the Masquerade Hall of Český Krumlov Castle.
Another town hosting regularly concerts of Concertino Praga was Bechyně. Beautiful premises of the Bechyně estate are crowded every year and 2019 was no exception. See the beautiful places in photos of Lucie Pelikánová.
The neo-gothic Schwarzenberg family tomb in Třeboň hosted one of the last concerts of the festival. The atmosphere was captured by Lucie Pelikánová.
The final gala concert of the festival is traditionally held in Jindřichův Hradec. All eight winners of the Concertino Praga performed during the final evening which was closed by the jingle of Concertino. We thank Petr Hanzlik for the beautiful photos.
