Join us as Music & Truffles KIDS celebrates its 16th birthday with an inspiring season of fresh, interactive music events sure to delight the young and the young at heart.

Joanna will be back to host our shows!  Watch her and our artists in action in the playlist below. 

Music & Truffles KIDS is designed for young people ages 5 to 11, but it is also a great series for adults just starting to explore the mysteries and ecstasies of classical music – you are not required to bring a young person, and you will get a Lindt chocolate truffle anyway!

THE SHOW: From the lovely land of Czechia! They will perform music from Eastern Europe and a little of J.S. Bach’s Art of the Fugue.

Formed in 1998, the Bennewitz Quartet is amongst the top international chamber ensembles today. The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung 2006 review: “… the music was remarkable not just for its clarity of structure, but for the beautiful tonal palette and purity of intonation in its execution. Only very rarely does one experience such skillfully crafted and powerful harmonies… Great art.” In 2019, the ensemble won the Classic Prague Award for Best Chamber Music Performance of the year.

The Czech-based group has performed at Wigmore Hall, Musikverein, Konzerthaus, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, The Frick Collection, Seoul Art Center, and at significant festivals including Salzburg, Lucerne, Rheingau, Kammermusikfest, and Lockenhaus.

They have collaborated with esteemed artists such Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Alexander Melnikov, Vadim Gluzman, and Jiří Bělohlávek/Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. This year, they will present Absolute Jest by John Adams with the Prague Symphony Orchestra.
