Czech Philharmonic: Velvet Revolution Concert

Czech Philharmonic
Semyon Bychkov

Live recording from the Rudolfinum, Dvořák Hall in Prague

Celebrating democracy, freedom and non-violence, the Czech Philharmonic’s concert to mark the Velvet Revolution will for the first time be presented in 2020.
Taking place every year on 17 November – both the day the then Czechoslovak riot police brutally supressed a peaceful student demonstration in Prague and International Students’ Day - the initiative also pays tribute to the Czech Philharmonic’s support of the general strike of 1989.
