The Mutual Inspirations Festival is an initiative spearheaded by the Embassy of the Czech Republic, under the patronage of Czech Minister of Foreign Affairs Karel Schwarzenberg, focusing on the mutual inspirations between Czech and American cultures.
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the whirlwind of events of this year's Antonín Dvořák festival. With the generous support of many respected and cherished partners, the Czech Embassy in Washington, DC, is bringing Dvořák's music to the capital as an integral part of a long-term project entitled Mutual Inspirations.
Czech Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Karel Schwarzenberg has given his patronage to the Mutual Inspirations Festival 2011 - Antonín Dvořák.
"It’s not the first time Antonin Dvorak has come to America. On Thursday, the Czech composer’s 170th birthday, the Embassy of the Czech Republic is launching a two-month “Mutual Inspirations Festival” of performances, films, and other events in Washington relating to his work," writes classical music critic Anne Midgette about the Mutual Inspirations Festival in The Washington Post.
