Every year, the programme encompasses early music in all its diversity: from solo to opera, from a few minutes of music to a complete work, we select for you the best of early music, to celebrate Early Music Day with your favorite artists and discover you net favourite pieces!
The concerts are broadcast in partnership with Total Baroque, and accompanied live by the artists: to enjoy the experience, just click on the link!

The concert will feature the finer intricacies of chamber music playing alongside the virtuosity of both the violin and flute. The most distinguished violin virtuosos of the late Baroque period came from Italy. They were celebrated both at home and abroad and were no strangers to Prague on their travels.
