A star is born: A small, new exhibit on Dvořák's 'big break' into international success runs now through Mar 28, 2016 at Prague's Antonín Dvořák Museum, Ke Karlovu 20. The turning point in his career came thanks to his duets, Moravian Folk Songs, which also became top hits for people to sing at home.
At the Czech Museum of Music, an exhibit on Jan Jakub Ryba (1765-1815) continues through June 16. Although only coming to international light now, Ryba is one of the locally best-known Czech composers, thanks to his Christmas Mass. In fact he was the author of about 1300 compositions; the Museum manages more than 500 of them, including autograph copies.
