Pearls of Czech and World Classical Music

Just read this in the Prague Post and have to pass it along because there is no better place to listen to classical music then in the spectacular Lubkowicz Palace...

The article states...
If you’re in Prague on vacation and want to sample some of its classical music delights, but feel bewildered by array of concerts on offer, the daily lunchtime concert at Prague Castle’s Lobkowicz Palace could be an ideal option.
Make your way to the back of the castle complex, where you’ll find the very ornate concert hall decorated with 17th Century stuccoed ceilings.
Entitled Pearls of Czech and World Classical Music, the daily program features an hour of well-known pieces by Mozart, Dvořák, Vivaldi, Bach and others.
While you’re there you can also see all the other historical sights of the castle, or just pay for the concert and enjoy a gourmet lunch in the Lobkowicz Palace Café.
If you’re the hiking type, you can take the Old Castle Steps from near Malostranská metro station all the way to the palace, enjoying fantastic views of the city along the way.
