My country – up close and aloud
World premiere of an audio-visual exhibition of the Czech Philharmonic from the creators of the opening ceremony of the London Olympics. Can you imagine a celebration of the century without Bedřich Smetana and Leoš Janáček?
The traveling exhibition entitled “My country – up close and aloud” was prepared at the occasion of the celebrations of the 100th anniversary of Czechoslovakia. Inside a special light-proof structure videos will be shown on special LED screens with an audio recording in superb quality, as performed by the Czech Philharmonic. The first part (Vltava by Bedřich Smetana) will take visitors to the history of the Czech nation as represented by the Vltava River. The second part reflects the boom of Czech art during the First Republic, with the musical topic being the fourth and fifth part of Janáček’s Sinfonietta. This part works with the motif of melted glass. The entire artwork is designed by 59 Productions from London which is known for frequent collaborations with BBC Proms and the Edinburgh International Festival or the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.
The grand opening of the project at the RE:PUBLIKA Festival is scheduled for 8/6 at 14:00.
