Project Musica non grata starts with series of online concerts "... and yet they still resound!"


The German-Czech cultural project "Musica non grata" which has been stalled due to the Corona pandemic, will kick off in 2021 with a series of online concerts. The launch will take place on March 24 with a program of works by Bohuslav Martinů (1890-1959). This will be followed by concerts with music by Hans Krása (1899-1944) plus a tribute to contemporary, Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971). The events can be viewed on the website of the National Theatre, on Youtube and on website of Musica non grata.
