In 1996, during the presidency of Václav Havel, Strings of Autumn established the curators of the music program Marek Vrabec and Martin Pechanec. Already in the first eight years, the Strings of Autumn have been celebrated by the original program and exceptional concerts such as the recital by Cecile Taylor, the Czech premiere of Michael Nyman, or Jan Garbarek's concert with Hilliard Ensemble.
The Strings of Autumn Festival annually paves the way for the expansion of musical horizons. Every festival concert is an event of its kind and genre. The strings of autumn feature music that you will not hear elsewhere.
During the 22nd year of the festival, the list of premiere performances will include Terry Riley, Egberto Gismonti, Daniel Lanois and Venetian Snares, Andy Irvine & Paul Brady, Open Mike Eagle, Lizz Wright Punch Brothers and others.
