Czech Phil: Velvet Revolution Concert 2022

Madgalena Kožená mezzo-soprano
Czech Philharmonic Orchestra
Simon Rattle

Czech Phil: Velvet Revolution Concert 2022 Celebrating democracy, freedom and non-violence, the Czech Philharmonic’s concert to mark the Velvet Revolution was presented for the first time 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.
In 2022 Simon Rattle and Magdalena Kozena perform with the Czech Philharmonic.

Ravel: Mélodies populaires grecques, Bartók: Five Hungarian Folksongs, Mahler: Symphony No. 9
