The 27th edition of Prague Sounds closes on Saturday November 18th with Bert & Friends's debut performance at Rudolfinum. The KLASIRDO programme will feature the band's songs in piano-based arrangements. Bert & Friends are the only Czech artists in this year's Prague Sounds line-up, which has featured concerts by Benjamin Clementine, Ron Carter, Alva Noto, Angelique Kidjo, and JACK Quartet, among others.

'It's a great honour for us to appear in the Prague Sound line-up alongside so many great artists - and performing our songs at Rudolfinum is a big event for us,' says band leader Albert Romanutti. 'It'll be a kind of celebration of the piano, and we'll be quoting from other Czech artists like Smetana, Petr Hapka, and Psi Vojaci. I love playing the piano, and it casts our songs in a whole new light.'

Prague Sounds director Marek Vrabec is pleased with how this year's festival has gone. 'We're very happy to have such a lot of interest from music fans in our concerts, which always offer something a little bit different,' he says. 'Sold-out shows have included Benjamin Clementine, Alva Noto, Owen Pallett, Nathan Fake, Kofi Stone, and Bert & Friends themselves. African singer Angelique Kidjo and jazz legend Ron Carter's shows were also extremely well received.'
