Year of the Czech Music
Just as in Czech history, years ending in eight tend to have an almost symbolic significance, in musical history this is true of the number four. The Brno National Theatre was opened in 1884, the life of the composer Bedřich Smetana is bookended by the years 1824 and 1884, Antonín Dvořák died in 1904, Josef Suk was born in 1874, and other composers whose lives are connected with the number four include Kryštof Harant of Polžice and František Václav Míča. However, for the Janáček Brno 2014 festival, the most significant date is the 160th anniversary of his birth.
