The fifth year of the pan-European project Czech Dreams will focus on the presentation of Czech chamber music by exceptional musicians in an inspiring dramatic setting. The focal point will be the celebration of the 200th anniversary of Bedřich Smetana’s birth. The international music festival Concentus Moraviae will provide the dramatic setting for the Year of Czech Music.
During Czech Dreams 2024, more than 100 concerts will be held throughout the year in 24 selected European countries, in approximately 70 towns and cities in European regions. The project will begin on 12 January 2024 at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk. The ‘Czech Weekends’ or ‘Czech Weeks’ in selected European cities will be an important aspect of Czech Dreams 2024. A perfect example of these large-scale presentations of Czech culture will be the Czech Week in Mechelen during the Lunalia festival.
