BELL 9801: Concert on the Vltava

The fifth concert at the Vltava-Concert for Europe was interesting from many points of view. He was awakened by the ringing of Bell 9801, a bell that was cast in memory of the same sweat bell, re-covered and later transported to and from there in 1941 to be melted down for the shafts. People hid bells from big cities and small villages in the smallest places. Not only in barns, but they buried them in the ground, chained them in wells or drowned them in ponds. Pesto was taken away in such huge numbers. After many years, actually going to the present are some in the church deaf. But the other door was filled with new bells in a large vint from sbrek oban. First, this is the case with Zvon 9801. The collection is not finished, as of today the amount of errors is 1 million crowns (information from the Internet).

The program of the concert was selected by the responsible – Dvokv Karneval, Smetanova Vltava and Jankova Glagolsk me. At the beginning, the Czech national anthem was played, the audience stood up, followed L. to Beethoven’s joy, the audience remained standing, even when any work was performed during the concert, the tribute to the insurgents was not raised. Even our EU presidency was guilty of admitting this discrepancy. It would only be darkness, not energy security. In his speech before the funeral, Petr Fiala highlighted Czech culture as a symbol of a country that, even in the days when it was a solid part of the camp of peace and socialism, was a country that undermined its culture and music. He somewhat forgot that she didn’t even marry her in other times, during the protectorate, because one conductor was freed. When this Josef Goebels invited the Czech Philharmonic to two concerts in e in 1941, Vclav Talich decided to perform Smetana’s M vlasti and L. pedehry in Beethoven’s Egmond. Both concerts in Berlin and in Drany were very successful. And that’s why it was possible to play during the Protectorate of My Homeland, so thanks to Talich, no one could ban these compositions.

But it was an otherwise impressive concert. Bell 9801 followed the Liberty Bell of Philadelphia and the Fallen Bell of Rovereto. This will be famous not only in Prague and not only in Czech Republic. What about 1 million crowns to pay for his mistakes? I would expect that the expenditure will come to the account of the collection even from the embassy of the Associations of the Republic of Germany with the responsible party.
