Prague Modern Concert
Call for Works

Prague Modern

Prague Modern has been hailed by music journalists as "the best Czech ensemble for new music“. It is ensemble of flexible size comprised of the cream of Czech instrumentalists.

Prague Modern is unique on the concert podiums/scene in the Czech Republic – the ensemble exudes both the youthful enthusiasm and the professionalism when performing contemporary music in solo recitals, chamber music concerts or smaller orchestra works.

Prague Modern has performed at prestigious new music festivals such as Contempuls Prague (repeatedly), MusicOlomouc, Prague Premieres, also at the classic Prague Spring Festival (Czech Republic), Musica Strasbourg, Festival international de musique Besancon, Les musicales de Quiberon (all France), Poznańska wiosna muzyczna (Poland) or Cafe Budapest (Hungary). Prague Modern also toured France, Romania, Slovakia and Turkey where their members also gave workshops on new music interpretation at local  universities. Furthermore, PM under the baton of Pascal Gallois had recorded several successful CDs for the Italian label Stradivarius featuring music of Luciano Berio, Pierre Boulez, Dai Fujikura, Gérard Grisey, Fabien Lévy and Arnold Schoenberg. The CD introducing the work of British composer Dai Fujikura was awared "Coup de cour 2004" in the field of new music by the famous French Academie Charles Cros. Prague Modern is regularly collaborating with conductors such as Michel Swierczewski, Pascal Gallois, Baldur Brönnimann, Roland Kluttig or Marián Lejava. Their repertoire includes the works of international avantgarde composers as well as the music of Czech contemporary composers.

Prague Modern has been open to in-between-the-art-fields and multimedia cooperations with acclaimed artists such as Jan Švankmajer (film), Kateřina Vincourová, Markéta Othová (visual art) or actress Fanny Ardant with whom they presented the Czech premiere of Cassandre, a spoken opera by Michael Jarrell and others.

Prague Modern was established by the conductor Michel Swierczewski in 2008 on the ground of the Prague Philharmonia. Since 2009 PM has functioned as a NGO with David Danel as Artistic Leader.

Echofluxx, started in 2011, is an annual festival of new media with an emphasis on experimental music, sound art and film. The festivals are rooted in the interplay of risk-taking and self actualization, a resistance to media specificity in art and the mindfulness of Cage. Echofluxx evolved out of the international fluxus movement and the University of Illinois-Urbana, USA, in the 70's where collaborating composers emerged working graphically, sculpturally, in dance, theatre, film and clay, and then through a natural post-graduate diaspora, to produce sundry artifacts, organizations, performances and festivals world-wide, the sum of which increases to this day. Echofluxx was cofounded by the current Drector, Dan Senn and Anja Kaufmann. This year's festival was produced by Dan Senn and David Danel.

Echofluxx is presented by FMErá of Prague/Watertown.
