The Czech Philharmonic 2018/2019
Although the brief was not explicit about it, the task in the competition searching for the visual style of the seasons of the Czech Philharmonic was to find the right position for classical music, which no longer wants to be so classical. The concept approved for a five-year term takes this process literally, starting from the foundations of the identity of the No. 1 Czech orchestra – the Rudolfinum edifice, the first programs of the Philharmonic and the aesthetics of the time, gradually growing through digitization and coming nearer: physically enlarged and entering the present. The Rudolfinum’s decoration started to be overlain by clearly contemporary signs and now for the 2018/2019 season transformed into purely digital abstraction reminiscent of modernist patterns.
