Christmas concert for the NTM

19. 12. 2016 - 7:00 PM

National Technical Museum, Kostelní 42, Prague 7 – Letná

PRIVATE EVENT

Christmas concerts traditionally include the Czech Christmas Mass also entitled “Hail, master!” amidst locomotives in the Transportation Hall of the National Technical Museum. A Czech Christmas music gem written 220 years ago (in 1796), represents a piece without which we cannot even imagine Christmas anymore here in the Czech Republic. Its musical and language communicativeness is quite unique in the entire European literature of that period.

E. Pascha: Pastorals
J. J. Ryba: Czech Christmas Mass “Hail, master!”

Karolína Janů – soprano
