The concerts in the Wallenstein Garden have become an imaginary landmark dividing the old and the new FOK seasons, and this year is no different. Beethoven has filled our 2020 season, as the master celebrates his 250th birthday. The coming season is imbued with the Czech repertoire and references to Prague. That is the inspiration for the classical part of the programme. But we’ll have to wait for that; for now, the Waltz of the Flowers fits well in the garden space. And there will also be popular film delicacies with references to the greats of Czech film, be it actors, directors and composers. One extra treat from the present: music from the popular series Game of Thrones. By the way, the conductor’s and presenter’s ‘throne’ will be occupied again by the excellent Jan Kučera.
