The Brno Contemporary Orchestra’s music marathon, which took place in seven empty Brno hotels over one week, can be viewed on its YouTube channel. Conducted by Pavel Šnajdr, a selection of pieces by contemporary composers was performed in uncommon places.
Throughout this series, the chamber orchestra collaborated together with the Terrain Platform, which comes under the Centre for Experimental Theatre, with director Anna Babjárová and Brno ballet soloist Martin Svobodník. The series of concert films was titled Please, Do Not Disturb, as it is an expression well-used both in hotels and recording studios. Film clips merging music, architecture, stories, dramaturgy, as well as current events were shot in the Brno hotels – Barceló, Grandezza, Cosmopolitan Bobycentrum, Continental, Santon, Grandhotel Brno and Padowetz Palace.
