Czech Philharmonic ⬩ Víkingur Ólafsson

This iconic work changed the world of music. Igor Stravinsky’s provocative The Rite of Spring will certainly bring spring to the Rudolfinum. Only rarely does an Icelandic pianist perform here, so we look forward to hearing how Mozart is played up north as well as to the symphony Prague Panoramas, inspired by Josef Sudek’s book.
