“Well, it makes us feel like we’re about to start – something like we did 20 years ago. [laughs] when we decided to make the first edition of [sister festival] United Islands.

“Everything is new, people are new to the business.

“So yes, it’s a great improvisation that will result in a great party.”

When Covid was going on and on, did you ever consider forgetting about Metronome and just dropping the idea of ​​this big festival in Prague?

“No. If I look at the history of human society, music has always been there, and so has sharing and community.

“So we have stuck to the idea that whenever Covid leaves us, it was also up to us how we are going to manage so that people come back and are happy to share life, culture and experience. “

The headliners this year are Nick Cave, Beck and Underworld, and of course there are plenty of other interesting artists as well. Who in particular are you looking forward to seeing this year?

“For sure the headliners will be very special.

“But I’m looking forward to Go_A, a group from Ukraine who were in the top five at Eurovision last year. They’ll start the day tomorrow [Thursday].

“I’m looking forward to Everything Everything, the cult British club band; sometimes when i listen to them i feel like it sounds like peter gabriel would be a young man now [laughs] and would make his music nowadays.

“So it will be a great show, after Beck.

“Also, I’m wondering what will happen on Saturday, because it’s the first year that we’ve opened the festival up to the hip-hop scene and there are some cool names coming up.”

For people who have been to the festival in the past, what will this year look like? Is there anything new that you are introducing this year?

“The last time they went to the Metronome Prague event was two days – and this year it’s four days.

“In fact, today we start with a benefit with Ukrainian artists [Wednesday] and we will end on Sunday morning.

“Also the last time people came to the grounds of Expo Prague [Výstaviště]right next to Stromovka, had just been renovated and rebuilt, and people saw that the space was changing, but it was still early days.

“And because Covid canceled many events, there was time to repair the area, and we thank the team who worked on the site for what they did.

“People will see brand new pavilions for after parties.

“They will see a lot of green space. The area will be pretty cool.

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds perform on the first night of Metronome Prague.

The calendar says 2022 — not 2002 — but fans will get a sense of deja vu when Tattoo the Earth returns to live gigs this summer.

The heavy music and body art event originally ran for three years, from 2000 to 2002, with the 2000 traveling festival best known as the main draw. That year featured many big names in rock and metal, including Slipknot and several others.

This year, Tattoo the Earth, in addition to rock music performances, will feature a tattoo village hosted by Massachusetts tattoo shop Zaza Ink, as well as a nearby festival village to include body piercing, painting body, art events, contests and more. Food trucks and a “Bacon & Bourbon” tent will also be on site.

“When I wrote caravan of painI never imagined it would bring the show back to life,” Alderman marveled in an April press release. Tickets for Tattoo the Earth Festival are on sale now.

This year’s Mozart Children’s Festival gala concert will take place this Sunday at the Janáček Theatre. Marie Kučerová, director of Filharmonie Brno, described the ambitious, irreplaceable and demanding production, because in one evening the children will try out three different types of cooperation: in the first they form a large ensemble completed by professionals, in the second c It’s the other way around, and in the third, young dancers will join in the music. Photo credit: Filharmonie Brno

Brno, June 8 (BD) – Nearly 200 artists will perform on stage on Sunday, with young talents from all over South Moravia far outnumbering professional musicians. “This is thanks to Kryštof Mařatka’s composition ‘Invisible Forest’, which will be performed in its Czech premiere,” said Kristýna Drášilová, project coordinator and lecturer in education at Filharmonie Brno. “The author composed it for children of all ages and different musical levels. They form the basis of the orchestra, the adults only supplement them. And not just philharmonic musicians, but also elementary school teachers and even parents. The melodramatic fable Gretel was commissioned by the Philharmonie de Paris to involve struggling slum children, then performed at France’s most prestigious concert hall.

It is not only the composition itself that is unique, but also the process of its preparation. “The goal was to allow all musicians who have the desire to play and improve to participate,” said Drášilová. “Since this is a contemporary piece, the orchestra is supposed to use non-standard sound instruments. On top of that, the young children learned to observe the gestures of the conductor during the performance, and even sitting on the chairs was problematic at first. Despite all these pitfalls, the conductor and choirmaster Michal Jančík guided the children towards a result that he can proudly describe as professional. There are 25 philharmonic musicians in the orchestra for this piece, and about 70 children, supplemented by 80 children from the Kantiléna choir.

Advertising

The most experienced students will play with the orchestra in the second part of the concert: the symphonic poem “Holoubek” by Antonin Dvořák. The second half of the concert will feature Bohuslav Martinů’s ballet comedy “Who is the most powerful in the world?” and the Philharmonie will join forces with the talent of the Brno Dance Conservatory.

The gala concert is the highlight of the festival program, but it is far from the only attraction. There are also concerts for kindergartens and schools, music workshops and the traditional concert of soloists for children. “It will allow children to play with a professional orchestra, with them as soloists. The best from all over South Moravia will perform, and people can expect solo dulcimer, accordion, piano, trumpet and harpsichord,” said Petr Karas, Head of Primary School co-organizer of Smetanova.

The closing ceremony will take place on Sunday June 12 at 7 p.m. at the Janáček Theater and the Concert of the children soloists will take place on Tuesday June 14 at 6 p.m. at the Besední dům. Tickets for both evenings are available in advance, online at filharmonie-brno.cz or at the door before the event.

The procession, which was led by a decorated horse-drawn carriage and people with flags, stopped several times along the way. Folk dance artists, including children’s dance ensembles, performed in front of spectators in Ovocný trh and Celetná Street.

After arriving at the Jan Hus monument in the Old Town Square, the procession split up and each ensemble again performed there separately. The festival and traditional parade through the city has resumed after a hiatus caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and government measures related to its suppression.

The subtitle of this year’s festival was “Let’s get together”, according to Slovo 21 director Jelena Silajdžic. The festival featured groups Connection and Imperio from the Czech Republic, an Israeli quartet called the Mediterranean Gypsy Swing Experience and a brass band, The Elvis Ajdinovic Orkestar.

The group Le Chavendar and the dancers of the Ballet Lucia Guarnido Studio performed on Saturday at the Archa Theater in Prague. The festival also featured a performance by some members of Ukraine’s only professional Roma theater ensemble, Teatr Romans, who fled to Poland before Russia escalated its war on Ukraine in February.

According to the organizers, KHAMORO (“Sun” in Romanesque) is the largest festival of professional performers from the Roma community in the world. Prague has hosted the festival since 1999.

In recent years, around 10,000 people have visited the event each year. The KHAMORO procession through Prague was first organized in 2001.
