Rudolfinum Combines Neo-Renaissance Beauty with Modern Technologies

3. 5. 2023 • Alice Horáková

The Rudolfinum breathtaking building is a gem of Prague Art Nouveau and masterfully enhances the concert and exhibition experience with its architecture. But few would expect a sophisticated system of state-of-the-art technology in a listed building. Yet it is the one that breathes, lights, heats, and cools the building and, unseen, unheard, day after day,

Terrace for all. Rudolfinum is taking steps towards an ambitious renovation

13. 3. 2023 • Filip Tomášek

The Rudolfinum building is a unique architectural masterpiece, a home of the muses and a temple of art. However, not all of its spaces are accessible to visitors. This also applies to the roof terrace for the time being. The situation is set to change with a plan that aims to make significant structural changes to the terrace and open it up to the general public.

Chain gangway. From Klárov to the Old Town and back again

Chain gangway. From Klárov to the Old Town and back again

17. 1. 2023 • Jakub Raš

Today, you can get to Rudolfinum from the Lesser Town via the Mánes Bridge. Before 1914, however, you would have crossed the river on a chain footbridge. It was built as the third suspension bridge over Vltava which really suited Prague, as you can see for yourself in the photo gallery.

Remaining true to oneself takes the greatest courage

30. 11. 2022 • Adéla Dražanová

Let me begin with a brief comment. It is very, very difficult to do an interview with Semyon Bychkov. Semyon is a truly fantastic storyteller. Whether you have an hour, two hours, or (just theoretically) a whole day, it is never enough. You want more. By the second or third question, you find that the world around you has vanished, and all that exists is Semyon’s world. And it does not matter whether the maestro is telling you about his childhood in Leningrad or about conducting in Vienna.

No More Squeaks. The Dvořák Hall Has a New Stage

26. 10. 2022 • Jakub Kožíšek

After thirty years, the reconstruction of the main concert hall at Prague's Rudolfinum shook the stage. Although its demanding replacement took place during mere 30 days of summer downtime, the special oak planks had been prepared for months. As a result of the efforts by the Rudolfinum administration and the Teak company, the new floor is a delight especially to the ears: only silence can be heard.

The Genius of Solitude

The Genius of Solitude

18. 1. 2022 • Anna Picard

“No music on earth can compare to ours” sings the child in the last movement of Mahler’s Fourth Symphony. Compared to the vast worlds of sound, emotion, philosophy and poetry in Mahler’s Second and Third Symphonies, this is a delicate and concise work with which to introduce a wider audience to Semyon Bychkov’s Mahler Cycle with the Czech Philharmonic. Composed in the last year of the nineteenth century and the first year of the twentieth, it is more gentle than the First Symphony, more innocent than the Fifth, and devoid of the existential terror that creeps into the Sixth and Seventh Symphonies.

The Conductor Semyon Bychkov, A Globetrotter with a Baton

26. 4. 2021 • Adéla Dražanová

He says music is his life, and his life is music. And that is natural, because he is one of the world’s best conductors and a phenomenon that hardly bears comparison. Nonetheless, in the text that follows, there is not much to read about music as such. The life story of Semyon Bychkov, chief conductor of the Czech Philharmonic, is so fascinating, and he is so wonderful at telling it, that in the course of a two-and-a-half hour interview, we (almost) did not get around to talking about music.

Classical Futures & Czech Philharmonic: Young Musicians in the (Artistic) Heart of Europe

20. 4. 2021 • Tereza Šindlerová

The soprano Elena Stikhina, pianists Ingmar Lazar and Adam Laloum or trumpeter Selina Ott. These are just a few names of musicians that have performed in the concert halls of the Rudolfinum in Prague during the past three seasons. What do all of the aforementioned ones have in common? They have not reached 35 years of age yet, are heading for international careers in music and their Prague performance was organised under the auspices of the Classical Futures European grant programme.
