PLATINUM PATRONS / Solo performers (CZK 100,000 and more)
Ideally, soloists are performers who, through their art and charisma, win everyone over to their side. The orchestra plays behind them like never before and the audience is amazed at what a soloist can do. The best of them are not selfish exhibitionists, but generous personalities who can share their art in a unique and special way.
It was Lumír and other fabled singers who sang the praises of the mythical Vyšehrad to the sound of their harps. Legendary Irish bards traipsed around the green island with harps in their hands. In today’s orchestra, the harp also boldly conveys important messages. It wanders among the other instruments alone, with everyone listening to her.
Today’s orchestra with piano, celesta and a harpsichord takes on a heavenly glamour and amazing rhythmic energy. Just a few touches of the keys and everything changes at once. The sound of the orchestra rotates and soars into the sky.
Imagine the largo from the New World’s Symphony and you will immediately recall the slightly nostalgic tone of the English horn. Remember how beautifully the clarinets and flutes converge as they talk about the confluence of the Cold and Warm Vltava rivers. Wind instruments enhance the character of an orchestra, underlining its personality.
Have you ever heard people praise the unique sound of the Czech Philharmonic? Have the rumours about the Berliner Philharmoniker’s smooth legato reached your ears? Whether yes or no, these characteristics largely apply to string instruments. The strings lay the foundations of the orchestral sound. Everything else is based on the strings.
