SUMMER FESTIVITIES OF EARLY MUSIC
14th international music festival

14 July 6 August 2013

ROMA AETERNA

One of the attractions of Summer Festivities of Early Music is their original, thematic programming. This year’s dramaturgy was informed by the hot and festive atmosphere of Rome and its great music. The seven concerts, which took place in various historical locations around Prague, in the performance of foremost international and Czech artists, evolved around the theme of Roma Aeterna. Just as the traditional title of Rome as the eternal city (urbs aeterna), first documented in the ancient poet Tibullus (55–17 BC), the programme of this year’s edition spanned several epochs and centuries, from Early Renaissance through the gems of Italian vocal polyphony and the beginnings of instrumental Baroque to the grand orchestral works by G. F. Haendel and operatic arias by A. Vivaldi.
