Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra to close this year’s Dvořák Prague Festival

Rudolfinum concert hall in Prague

The Dvořák Prague International Music Festival, currently taking place in the capital’s Rudolfinum concert hall, will have its closing concert on Monday evening – and it will be performed by none other than Czech Radio’s own symphony orchestra. Headed by energetic conductor Petr Popelka, the orchestra will perform De Profundis, a symphonic poem by Vítězslav Novák, followed by the celebratory Te Deum, written by Novák’s teacher and the festival’s namesake, Antonín Dvořák.

Celebrating both the success of this year’s Dvořák Prague Festival and Czech Radio’s centenary this year, the concert is a shared celebration by two respected institutions.

Although the concert is already sold out, it will be broadcast live on Czech Radio’s cultural station Vltava and on Euroradio network partner stations. But if you can’t wait until then, we’ll give you a little foretaste of the musical programme on our Sunday Music Show this week.
