A jubilee concert staged by the festival’s artistic director Vojtěch Stříteský, who will celebrate 40 years of his work for Smetana’s Litomyšl with an evening full of musical evergreens and discoveries, a film quiz for the audience, and with his favorite composers, compositions and performers

“Pessimists may have been expecting some kind of personal celebration, but they didn’t get it. On the contrary – the celebrant generously gifted them! And that is probably the loveliest surprise!”

Bohuslav Vítek, Festival Newspaper 2013
