On Wednesday, September 7, you will be able to listen to siren music performed by the Berg Orchestra on the roof terrace of the National Agricultural Museum in Prague. It is a unique project for which twenty contemporary Czech composers have created new compositions. All are intended to be performed during the regular siren test on the first Wednesday of the month. And by the way – the Music to the Siren project won the prestigious Prix Italia award for the Czech Republic in 2021 for almost half a century. “For September’s music, we have chosen Ian Mikyska’s composition A sequence of several sounds and silences performed by members of the Berg Orchestra: Tereza Podsedníková and Anna Dolečková – clarinets, Tomáš Mika – electric guitar and Jakub Tengler – drums. We recommend that you come really early. The concert starts with the announcement and then continues to the sound of sirens. And they are unerringly accurate,” invite the organizers of the event.
