“Check rhe concert hall”
Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

We wanted to go to a show in the large concert hall and the lady at rhe counter kept insisting thete was only one hall until we paid her the money. After that she merrily told us we wpuld be going to the small hall.

We heard a very touristy albeit good concert.

Thank indianlady

“Czech Philharmonic Concert”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We visited the Rudolfinium on Wednesday, December 19th, 2012 to see the Czech Philharmonic. WOW! Not only was the concert great, the auditorium was absolutely beautiful! If you get a chance to see a concert here during a trip to Prague, do not miss it. My husband and I jumped at the chance to get all dressed up and listen to world class music.

“Visit Rudolfinum and listen to one of the top thee orchestras in the world.”
Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Rudolfinum is in itself a jewel, it consists of the great Dvorak Hall, the Suk chamber music hall, a museum, cafe, and a large art center. But in this jewel dwells another, even more percious one; The Prague Philharmonic Orchestra! In the 1940's it was the worlds best orchestra. If you don't believe me, listen to the recordings of Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet under the baton of Karel Ancerl.
Last year we went to a performance of Janacek: Mr. Broucek's travels, Dvorak's Ten
Biblical Songs, and Stravinsky's Petrouchka. It was in one word; incredible! The hall is acousticly wonderful, but difficult because of the three second reverb. The orchestra master this to the fullest. Their articulation is better than any other orchestra I can think of. You can hear everything, down to the tinyest detail. Bravo! They Bellona to the true middle-European orchestral tradition where presition is a matter of breathing together rather than being beaten together.
Their sound has the same wonderful quality as the Vienna philharmonic. We were mesmerized!

“Consider before buying tickets for a concert”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

The Rudolfinum is one of the places that has heavily promoted concerts every night. If you go to a concert that is part of a festival or proper program that should be good, but it is more likely you will be offered tickets for one of the 'tourist' performances put on nearly every night. If so, think about it before going ahead. The cost is fairly substantial, between 700 and 1200 crowns, and what you get is only about 60 minutes of very familiar standard pieces, with a cutesy little encore at the end. Iam no expert, but I felt that the playing, though of a high standard, was just rushed through at a fast tempo. Also, for the Rudolfinum, be aware that the performance for these tourist concerts is not in the main hall but a smaller and less impressive secondary hall at the side. Personally I felt it was not worth what they charged, but if you just want to see a performance by professionals in a famous setting, go ahead.

We attended two nights of the International Prague Music Festival. Beautiful venue and interesting to see the locals dressed for the evening.
