Surprise programme featuring works by Czech composers 

Sir András Schiff, one of the greatest musicians on the classical scene today, is planning a surprise for the opening concert of the festival. Specially for his Prague audience he has pledged to perform music by Czech composers, however, he has decided not to inform listeners of the precise programme until the concert itself. “For me, it is much more spontaneous to announce the programme on the spot and explain the works a little. This creates a connection with the audience, we are together to experience something. You have to respect and trust each other. The audience should believe that I will always present only the best works, as well prepared as possible. In return, I count on the sensitivity and high intelligence of my audience. In this manner – and there are other ideas – we can experience concerts in a new and refreshing way,” concludes Schiff, whose recital promises a truly unique experience.
