Organ Concert at St. Vitus Cathedral, Prague Castle
We went up to the immense and stunningly gorgeous medieval St. Vitus Cathedral to hear Jacob Jansta play Max Reger's Three Fantasties Opus 52 on the cathedral organ. He also played Dvorak's Symphony 9, Opus 95 Largo and Allegro on organ. The pipes sounded different from those at St. Gile's and it was almost like listening to a symphony orchestra at times in the passages of the various parts of the works. There was a standing ovation and he played another piece by Mendelson.
Chris and I visited the Lobkowicz Castle and their art collection. The Lobkowicz Family truly thought that they had lost everything in the War II and during the ensuing communist regime. Fifty years later they were able to reclaim their home and art pieces. It was emotionally stirring to hear their stories. One of my favorite pieces was a grand-scale painting by Brueger the Elder shown below.
