17 March – 4 September 2006

Exhibition “Music in Prague 1760–1810”

The National Museum – Czech Museum of Music

The exhibition held on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of the birth of W.A.Mozart will give a complex insight into the musical life in Prague between 1760 and 1810. It aims at introducing the composers (such as Jan Antonín Koželuch and Vinzenz Maschek) and virtuosos (such as V. Maschek and J. K. Kuchař) who lived in Prague and also at pointing out the venues where their music was played – theatres, monasteries, choir lofts and music bands of nobility. Precious music collections will be mentioned, for example the collections of the Strahov and Břevnov Monasteries and the Convent of Nuns of St Elizabeth.

The exhibits on display, namely sheet music, theatre posters, opera libretti, prints (pictures of Prague and composers) and paintings, will come mainly from the collections of the music history department of the Czech Museum of Music and from other institutions, such as the Strahov Monastery, Břevnov Monastery, the music department of the National Library, the National Gallery, the Museum of the City of Prague and the Memorial of National Literature.

The exhibition will of course also remember Mozart’s Prague visits. The exhibition will be attractive for the general public as well as the connoisseurs. A richly illustrated catalogue will be published.

Venue: the exhibition halls of the Czech Museum of Music, Karmelitská 2, Prague 1 Opening hours: daily except Tuesdays, 10–18.
