The first edition of our Prague Quiet Music Festival will introduce five premieres played by the Prague Quiet Music Collective and two guests: Fredrik Rasten on guitars and Miroslav Beinhauer playing the unique sixth-tone harmonium. Gentle compositions from around the world will be performed in the enchanting environment of the Czech Museum of Music, which will be transformed by a plant installation by Hænke, light design by Tomáš Morávek and tea by Meetea into an oasis of slowly flowing contemplative music for one December evening. Through a confluence of circumstances, weeds became the theme of the evening, connecting the plant design with the music (literally, in some cases). New pieces by: Eva-Maria Houben (DE), Linda Catlin Smith (CA), James Weeks (UK), Fredrik Rasten (NO) a Ian Mikyska (CZ). Join us for a magical evening filled with gentleness.
