Rudolfinum

On October 5 th, as part of our accompanying programme Offstrings, Strings of Autumn presents the first – ever co – production between the festival and the Czech Chamber Music Society, whi ch is embarking on its 126 th season and which has functioned since 1977 under the umbrella of the Czech Philharmonic. The collboration has come about thanks to a broadening of the festival dramaturgy and a new concept for the CCMS. Rarely do audiences have a chance to see two world – renowned ensembles share a stage, and more rarely still with a programme in part specially put together for the event.

Edison Filmhub

What is film music? Did you know that film music isn’t created solely by a composer, but by a whole team of people from various professions? Struny on Film this year once again presents films with musíc by composers and performers connected with the festival (Max Richter, Daniel Hope), as well as paying tribute to Jóhann Jóhannsson with the premiere of the film Last and First Men, and taking a close look at the work of music supervisor Pascal Mayer, who’s been involved in dozens of films including Gaspar Noe’s Lux Æterna, Love and Climax. We’ll be premiering the drama Lux Æterna and hosting a discussion of it in the inspiring space of the Edison Filmhub.
