Events at this Venue


To mark the centenary of the founding of Czechoslovakia in the aftermath of the First World War, the festival is linking with the Dvorák Society and Velehrad, the newly refurbished Czech Cultural Centre in Barnes, to present music by Czech composers and others associated with Czech and Slovak cultures. The programme of piano duets is played by Imma Setiadi, a young prize-winning pianist, and Nigel Clayton, Professor of Piano at the Royal College of Music. This includes dances by Dvor?a´k and other composers who were influential to him such as Brahms (who was a real supporter to his career) and Jana´c?ek (who was his companion during his visit to the mountain range and forest in South Bohemia, Dvor?a´k’s inspiration for Bohemian Forest), a beautiful portrayal of the river Vltava by Smetana, and Schulhoff’s Ironies which was composed around the time of the First World War.
