Throughout the Czech Philharmonic’s history, two features have remained at its core: its championing of Czech composers and its belief in music’s power to change lives. Václav Talich (Chief Conductor 1919 - 1941) pioneered concerts for workers, young people and voluntary organisations as early as the 1920’s. The philosophy continues today. In these difficult times the orchestra organize another benefit concert. The aim is to raise money for elderly people in the Czech Republic. In solidarity with freelance musicians across the country, several of them were invited to attract public attention to their situation.
