Prague Autumn Festival

The Prague Autumn International Music Festival, usually just known as the Autumn Festival, is the companion to the Prague Spring International Music Festival; the Autumn Festival marks the end of the European summer music festival season, just as the Spring Festival marks the beginning. This internationally acclaimed classical music festival has gained renown for its programme of celebrated musicians. The programme combines famous old music with the best of contemporary classical music. Of course, Prague has a rich musical heritage and is proud of its prominence in classical music and its history of embracing the arts. The Autumn Festival is held at various venues around Prague, although many of the concerts take place at the Rudolfinium, which is a very special, and very beautiful building. If you are a classical music fanatic then you will be richly rewarded by booking your trip to the Czech Republic to coincide with either of these music festivals; even the uninitiated will be delighted by the performances on offer.
Venue: Prague State Opera Municipal House Rudolfinum
Date: 12 September to 1 October 2016
