The soloist is the excellent violinist and concertmaster of the Czech Philharmonic Jan Mráček, who received the Jiří Bělohlávek Award for yung musicians at last Open Air Concert. This year, too, the prize will be awarded - after all, this concert is traditionally dedicated to the former chief conductor every year. You can also look forward to the moderation of Marek Eben.
