A Little Night Music

Prague is a magnificent city, much grander and larger than I expected. The architecture is decidedly different, a Czech style all its own. And it is breathtaking. The Charles Bridge is a fascinating statue-lined promenade over the Vltava River that has sweeping views of the city. What a magnificent sight in the daylight and in the light-filled dark.

This evening, Kathy and I attended a concert of classical music in the Mirror Hall. All marble and fresco painted, the hall has a pipe organ in the front and in the back. They are two separate instruments. A chamber ensemble joined with the organ to play some of the well known classics, such as Bach’s “Air on G String,” Vivaldi’s, “The Four Seasons,” and Pachelbel’s “Canon in D,” to mention just a few. We thoroughly enjoyed the music in a lovely venue. We then ventured into Wenceslaus Square where a modern Czech concert was in full swing, laser lights, smoke and video projection giving a different vibe to our evening. It was fun. We definitely enjoyed a night of music. WEG
