Prague is a city filled with ample opportunities to enjoy beautiful classical music, performed by some of the city's best musicians. But there is a difference between these nightly little mini-concerts performed for the constant flow of tourists, and the main events. I've heard wonderful things about concerts in The Municipal House, mainly because of the venue. So last April when my husband and I were in Prague, we booked tickets for a concert there. Buyer beware! The concert's venue was actually in a long, narrow room in the basement, and the musicians seemed that they'd performed the pieces a few too many times - it was a rather heartless performance.
So, this past month when I returned to Prague, I was determined to attend another concert, only to make sure that it was in The Municipal House's main auditorium, Smetana Hall. The tickets were not cheap - about 75 Euros each. I was surprised that the seating area was just a flat floor with a lot of chairs. The musicians gave a good performance. However, there was an adjoining hall where one of Prague's other numerous tourist concerts was taking place. Not only could the music from the other hall be heard, it was quite distracting. It wasn't fair to our musicians, and it certainly was not a concert worth the amount we'd paid. And then after only an hour, the concert ended. Disappointing to say the least.
