Reasons Why You Will Enjoy Music in
Prague with Your Eastern European Escort
Music will always be part of a
country’s culture. It’s a form of expression that can be easily understood by
anyone even if there’s a language barrier. In Prague, music is more than just a
part of their daily lives as music has always been part of their history and
has influenced their culture. It’s not easy to separate Prague with music. Even
though the city is well known for its architecture, locals in Prague have a
high regard and knowledge of music.
From Mozart to Dvorak
One of the greatest testaments of
the city’s appreciation to music is none other than Mozart. During his brief
stay in the city, he was deeply impressed with the way people react and
appreciate his music. His Symphony No. 38 was written in this city and it was
dedicated to the people of Prague. Aside from Mozart, the city is also home to
various classical musicians notably Antoni Dvorak. Both composers have museums
in the city wherein their works and even the objects they used while in the
city are on display.
Prague and Jazz
It’s impossible for any tourist to
visit Prague and not witness random jazz performances on the street. Tourists
will immediately realize from their first day in Prague that the city is very
much in love with jazz. Visit Charles Bridge at sundown and you’ll see
musicians with various musical influences play. But more often than not, many
musicians come here to play jazz. There are even small streets in Prague where
you can hear jazz performed from a trumpet by a local. There are even pubs and
bars in Prague where you can enjoy a night of jazz music.
Music in Recent History
Prague also has some interesting
recent history when it comes to music. During communism, musicians would often
paint graffiti in the wall dedicated to John Lennon. Although it was painted
clean the next day, another set of graffiti is made on the same night. Local
musicians also became the voice of the people against communism that some of
them have to get out of the country because of persecution. Another testament
of the country’s appreciation of music is through Czech Republic’s first
president Vaclav Havel. One of his first orders of business is to invite Frank
Zappa. He is also a known fan of Velvet Underground.
Festivals, Festivals and More Music
There is a music festival in Prague
every season. Although they are dedicated to different genres, it just shows
that the locals are very fond of music and would often see them live in Prague.
Classical concerts are very common in Prague and they are often performed in
well known churches, castles and opera houses because of their impressive
acoustics. But the biggest festival is the International Jazz Festival which
happens every October.
If you’re a music lover or even someone who just likes to listen to music, you will surely like Prague. Your Czech escort will be happy knowing that you can be very appreciative of music.
