Classical in the Czech Republic.

Show: Concertino Orchestra at the Rudolfinum
Headliner: Concertino Orchestra
Openers: None
Location: Dvorak Hall in the Rudolfinum, Prage, Czech Republic
Date: Sunday, July 9, 2006
2006 Show #: 12

While in Prague, I attended a concert in Dvorak Hall in the Rudolfinum. This is a gorgeous venue and since the have concerts nightly, we were able to get good seats rather inexepnsively. I won't be able to give detailed desriptions since it has been a good bit of time since the actual concert.

The first half consisted of Water Music by Handel, Concerto in C Major by Mozart, and The Four Seasons by Vivaldi. The second half consisted of Moldau by Smetana, Two Waltzes by Dvorak, and "Carmen" Fantasty by Bizet.

I found everything very enjoyable, and the orchestra was very skilled. I was impressed how much effort they put in while playing to such a small audience. Definitely worth seeing a show at the Rudofilnum if you are in Prague.
