On 24th of February there was a donors evening dedicated to Magdalena Kožená's personal project aimed at the support of a unique system that promotes cultural elementary schools. These values - provision of the high quality cultural education - are in alignment with ours. That is why we decided to become far more engaged in Magdalena's project and also supported it with our own attendance.
La Berta Barockorchester Basel, rightfully belonging among the world elite of performers of the baroque genre, is led by worldwide known italian, conductor Andrei Marcona. Magdalena Kožená and La Berta Barockorchester Basel cooperate on a frequent basis. Their program was unique not only on the dramaturgical front, but also interpretative front. Producer Ondřej Havelka, a long time friend and colleague was entrusted with staging direction.
BOHEMIAN HERITAGE FUND is a partner of the project.
