Classical, but Comical | Festival Krumlov

Playful invitation to the world of classical music

Music offers many genres and styles. However, there are probably just as many various interpretations of classical music itself. This term covers dozens of centuries, hundreds of composers, and thousands of compositions that were influenced by contemporary trends and the life experience of their authors. As a result, classical music transcends centuries, ever-remaining relevant and we believe that it speaks to everyone. The Classical, but Comical concert will show one of the layers of classical music – a surprising and playful side opening up its world for those, who find it “hard to understand”. This concert will prove that classical music speaks to everyone willing to listen.
