Film Music Prague 2018 – Detailed concert program and guests

Today kicks off the 7th edition of the Film Music Prague festival, to be held from April 19 to 22, 2018 in Prague (Czech Republic), including a total of 5 concerts and multiple world premieres, with thematic concerts dedicated to the music of Benjamin Wallfisch, Two Steps from Hell and Clint Mansell, as well as a special closing gala concert called ‘True Stories’.


According to the official website, the list of guest composers confirmed at this time is as follows: Carly Paradis, Daniel Pemberton, Roman Kariolou, Matthijs Kieboom, Ilan Eshkeri y Thomas Bergersen (part of Two Steps from Hell).


You will be missing in this list the main guests announced months ago, Benjamin Wallfisch and Clint Mansell, and pending official confirmation by the organization, seeing they’re not announced as participants in the programs of concerts dedicated to their music (as you will see below), we have to think that they have been forced to cancel their assistance.


Here you have the full list of concerts and their planned programs:

  • Choir: Vox Pragae Choir (choir master Miriam Nemcova)
