short history...

The Founding of the Prague’s Spring Festival dates back to the beginning of the post-war era. The first opening ceremony was set in 1946 under the patronage of Eduard Beneš, at that time president of Czechoslovakia. The highest honour to perform on the first season of the festival was given to the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, who in that year was celebrating its fiftieth anniversary.

During the first years, the festival paid tribute not only to the most important Czech composers such as Bedřich Smetana, Antonín Dvořák, Leoš Janáček and Bohuslav Martinů, but as well the work of composers from the four victorious countries that fought Hitler (United States, Great Britain, France and the Soviet Union). Leonard Bernstein, later to become a celebrated American conductor, made his first international debut at the Prague Festival, and so did Russian virtuosos David Oistackh (violin), Sviatoslav Richter (piano) and Mstislav Rostropovitch (cello).

During its many years of existence, the festival has welcomed:

  • Some of the most famous 20th century composers: Leonard Bernstein, Arthur Honegger, Paul Hindemith, Darius Milhaud or Pierre Boulez;
  • Some of the greatest conductors: Karel Ančerl, Claudio Abbado, Sir Adrian Boult, Herbert von Karajan, Lorin Maazel, Kurt Masur, Evgeny Mravinsky, Charles Munch, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Leopold Stokowski;
  • Legendary violinists: David Oistrakh, Yehudi Menuhin, Shlomo Mintz, Ruggiero Ricci, Josef Suk, Henryk Szeryng, and, not long ago, Gidon Kremer, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Maxim Vengerov, Gil Shaham, Hilary Hahn;
  • Let’s name some of the most acclaimed pianists of the Prague Spring Festival who earned huge applause from the audience: Arthur Rubinstein, Rudolf Firkušný, Lev Oborin, Emil Gilels, Rudolf Serkin, Alfred Brendel, Artur Benedetti Michelangeli.
  • Some of the laureates of the prestigious international Chopin Piano competition: Maurizio Pollini, Martha Argerich, Garrick Ohlsson, Krystian Zimerman, Li Yun Di and Rafal Blechacz;
  • Last but not least, some of the most beautiful voices: soprano – Galina Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Elena Obraztsova, Katia Ricciarelli, Kathleen Battle, Edita Gruberova and Gabriela Beňačková; mezzo soprano – Christa Ludwig, Jessye Norman, Brigitte Fassbaender, Anne Sofie von Otter,  Bernarda Fin and two leading Czech divas Dagmar Pecková and Magdalena Kožená; tenors – Nicolai Gedda, Peter Schreier, Luciano Pavarotti, Peter Dvorský, Štěfan Margita; baritones – Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Thomas Hampson and Matthias Goerne; basses – Kim Borg, Nikolai Ghiaurov and Ruggiero Raimondi.

The Festival today
The annual Prague Spring Festival ranks amongst the most prestigious musical events. The grandiose opening night of the festival at the Municipal House (Obecní Dům) starts traditionally with a performance of Bedřich Smetana's My Country (Má Vlast), a cycle of symphonic poems (Bedřich Smetana was born just on the 12th of May). The Festival offers prestigious concerts which are performed by world’s famous soloists and orchestras. For those performances it is important to book tickets well in advance. However, there is also a wide range of easily accessible concerts at various prices.

In recent years the festival has also broadened its program to other musical styles.

As part of the Prague Spring International Music Festival, a competition of young talents takes place. The competition provides an opportunity for young artists to start an artistic career. The performances are accessible to a general public at affordable prices.
