This concert offers a unique opportunity to discover Dvořák’s popular Lužany Mass in a version that the composer created specifically for the Rudolfinum, but that is very seldom heard. The composer himself supposedly regarded this version of the Mass as the most successful one. This unique performance, prepared especially for the Dvořák Prague Festival, will feature one of the best-known musical ensembles devoted to historically informed interpretation, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. The orchestra will join forces with the superb King’s College Choir, which is an embodiment of the best of England’s long tradition of performing vocal music.
