Remarkable evenings in the magical Lobkowicz Palace attract guests to special gatherings with the curators of the Lobkowicz Collections and to a fascinating discussion about subjects connecting both history and the present. The guests have a unique opportunity to meet the PKF – Prague Philharmonia’s artists and management. Refreshments provided by the head chef of the Lobkowicz Palace and a glass of wine make a welcoming and friendly atmosphere that pervades the whole evening.

“When I first heard opera singing, I immediately knew I had to learn it!”

Already at the beginning of his so far short career, the young Slovak singer Peter Kellner has already performed as a soloist in all professional opera houses in Slovakia. Abroad, he multiplied his success and credited his performances at the Graz Opera, the Vienna State Opera or the Royal Opera House and Wigmore Hall in London. He has given concerts with leading ensembles such as the Camerata Salzburg, the Vienna Philharmonic and the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. Experts predict him a long career for his immeasurable talent.

In the opening concert of the PKF - LOBKOWICZ Series, we will offer two jewels of Czech music. Biblical Songs, the intimate and idiomatic late work of Antonín Dvořák, incurred during the composer's stay in the USA. These songs were created in just three weeks and the author's spontaneous mastery, as well as his sincere faith, is directly tangible in it. Symphony in D major by Jan Václav Hugo Voříšek, who was appreciated during his studies also by Ludwig van Beethoven, is the composer's only symphony. At the same time, however, it is one of the most admired works of this composer, organist and pianist, who has a crucial place in the Czech music history as a representative of the turn of classicism and romanticism periods.
