Prague Proms 2012 is over
The 8th season of Prague Proms brought many premieres. Among them the world premiere of the composition penned for the Proms and the Czech National Symphony Orchestra by an American composer and trumpet player Nicholas Payton. Other premieres included Duke Ellington's famous New Orleans Suite first time performed in the Czech Republic. It was also the first time some of the guest artists appeared in the Czech Republic. Kurt Elling, the most successful jazz vocalist of the last decade, or Gabriela Montero, the brilliant Venezuelan pianist belong among them. And it was also the first time that the Proms were officially opened on the open-air stage at the Wenceslas Square by the Czech National Symphony Orchestra with the Hollywood Night program.
