The festival is a small-scale project that is held in the autumn months (September and October) in churches and historical buildings in the town of České Budějovice. Seven concerts and one accompanying event are planned for its fifth edition. The festival focuses on early music (Baroque, Renaissance, Medieval).
In addition to already introduced and renowned musical groups, we also make space for young progressive ensembles. Interest in the festival from Czech and international performers shows no decline (2023 is already fully booked). In 2022, the following performers will appear:
- La Quinta Pars (France, Czech Republic, Chile, Japan) with a programme of French renaissance chansons, dances and musical improvisations from 1528 – 1608.
- Beatriz Lafont (Spain) the excellent soprano together with guitarist and lutenist Jan Čižmář (Czech Republic) will present Spanish Baroque and Sephardic music
- Vandalia Ensemble (Spain) in the Spanish Golden Age programme will perform songs by Spanish composers from the reigns of Charles V and Philip II.
- Schola Gregoriana Pragensis (Seven Days at Charles University)
- Musica Florea (Music of the Czech Baroque Masters)
- Anmoen (Birth - Destruction - Hope, an unexpected fusion of Baroque and contemporary music)
- Capella Ornamentata (Mars Bohemicus - repertoire of brass bands around 1620 during the reign of King Ferdinand II of Bohemia)
As an accompanying programme, an exhibition of photographs from previous years of the festival will be held, the opening of which will take place at the opening ceremony of the festival in the Rabenštejnská Gallery on 1 September at 17:00.
