Dvořák Prague Festival

Classical Music Festival

From the very beginning, the chief idea behind the Dvořák Prague International Music Festival has been to promote the reputation of Czech culture through the legacy of the works of Antonín Dvořák, his contemporaries, and his pupils. And because quality is the festival’s sole criterion, appearing on stage at the Dvořák Prague Festival are only the finest soloist and conductors and the most internationally recognised orchestras and chamber ensembles, which introduce the international public to Dvořák’s music


Antonín Dvořák Prize

Music Awards

The Antonín Dvořák Prize is a prestigious award in the field of classical music.

Concertino Praga

Music Competition

Concertino Praga – the Antonín Dvořák International Radio Competition for Young Musicians – has been held each year since 1966. The mission of this multidisciplinary competition is to find extraordinary talents up to age 15 or 16.


Student Orchestras at the Dvořák Prague Festival

Orchestral Playing

This year’s concert by the Symphony Orchestra of the Prague Conservatoire is in keeping with the focus on the education and development of talented young musicians in the field of orchestral playing. This year, the orchestra is led by the exceptional conductor Petr Altrichter, and it will consist of students and recent graduates of the Prague Conservatoire who want to perfect their skills as orchestral players. They will present the results of their hard work on 13 September 2022 at a concert of the Dvořák Prague International Music Festival. The focus on the rising generation is enhanced by collaboration with the violinist Daniel Matejča, a laureate of the 2020 Concertino Praga competition, who will be introducing himself as the soloist.
