Prague Sounds has unveiled its 2023 line-up. The 27th edition of the festival, formerly known as Strings of Autumn, will feature outstanding artists from contemporary music, electronica, jazz, and hip-hop. Singer and pianist Benjamin Clementine opens the festival at Rudolfinum, and in they days that follow there'll be concerts by legenary jazz bassist Ron Carter, leading contemporary string quartet JACK Quartet (with a special programme celebrating John Zorn's 70th birthday), groundbreaking electronica artist Alva Noto and Ensemble Modern, and Owen Pallett, the multi-instrumentalist and master of looping in an intimate solo show. The latter part of the festival include a live performance by electronica artist Nathan Fake, hip-hop from young British rapper Kofi Stone, and Czech band Bert & Friends in the unusual setting fo Rudolfinum.
'I'm glad that this year's Prague Sounds offers up a programme of artists you won't hear at any other Czech festival this year – and each one in a venue that will guarantee a unique experience both for performer and audience. As always, we're excited to discover new names and unique projects, and, for example, to open the doors of Rudolfinum to an artist like Benjamin Clementine,' says festival director Marek Vrabec.
