Český Krumlov Festival of Chamber Music and the Baroque Night

The music festival with the longest tradition in the city offers attractive and rewarding artistic experiences.

Enjoy chamber concerts of classical music as well as jazz concerts. On the top of that, experience the unique Baroque Night at the Český Krumlov Castle – a historical replica of celebrations from the 18th century.

The overall character and dramaturgy of the concerts benefit from Český Krumlov's genius loci, the atmosphere of the castle and the sacred and secular historical spaces in which the concerts are held. Renowned soloists and chamber ensembles from the Czech and international music scene perform within the diverse dramaturgy of the festival.

A unique experience and a jewel of the Chamber Music Festival is the Baroque Night at Český Krumlov Castle, a historically faithful analogy of the Baroque festivities. Visitors have the opportunity to experience the atmosphere of theatrical and musical festivities held in the 18th century. The highlight of the evening is the performance of an opera in the Baroque Castle Theatre, it then continues the Castle Gardens, where the programme concludes with further musical numbers and a stylish Baroque firework display based on historical sources.
