Česká Lípa Region 21/9/2012 - 2/11/2012
In 2012 the BOHEMIAN HERITAGE FUND became a partner of another out-of-Prague festival, the Lípa Musica Festival in Česká Lípa. This is undoubtedly the biggest cultural event in the region during the autumn season. The aim this year was, among others, owing to its location on the border, to help improve Czech-German neighbourly relations. This year represented a turning point, mainly in that it fulfilled its “internationality” thanks to the two concerts organized in the border towns with free bus connections for the chosen concerts. The whole cycle was ceremoniously launched at Prague Castle with a concert by the Pavel Haas Quartet. The opening concert in the resplendent “First Republic” Theatre in Jablonec can, beyond question, be regarded as of the same high quality thanks to the energetic interpretation of the Italian conductor.
