Back in Prague, Karl-Heinz Steffens is delighted to be on stage with the orchestra of Prague State Opera conducting a gala concert to open the 20/21 season, his second as Music Director.  The concert marks the beginning of the four-year Musica non Grata project dedicated to “unwelcome music” written by composers who fell victim to the despotism of the 20th-century totalitarian regimes.

Joining them on 30th August for music by Kaprálová, Zemlinsky and Martinů are pianist Alice Rajnohová, baritone Svatopluk Sem and organist Jan Kalfus.
