- ti 15. 10. 2019 – ke 13. 11. 2019
Since its inception in 1996, Strings of Autumn has established itself as one of the Czech Republic’s major music festivals, whose wide-ranging and eclectic programming illuminates the relationships between genres ranging from early and contemporary classical to jazz, hip-hop, and electronica. Tracking the pulse that runs from era to era and style to style, and playing out in a variety of intimate venues across Prague, Strings has presented some of the world’s most iconic musical pioneers, as well as the new generations inspired by them.
The 23rd edition of the international festival Strings of Autumn will offer approx. 10 concerts inspired by contemporary classical music, hip-hop, jazz and electronic music.
The festival will kick off in the Forum Karlín on October 15, 2019 by the concert of the British singer and pianist Laura Mvula. Further on, visitors can look forward to the Charles Lloyd‘s saxophone Quintet, jazz pianist Fred Hersch or the avant-garde ensemble JACK Quarter. One of the festival’s highlight is also the concert performance of Jiří Suchý, paying tribute to his and Šlitr’s songs. The last festival’s concert will take place in the Lucerna Palace on November 13 with De La Soul as performers.
