The so-called Museum “Bertramka” or the house-Museum of Mozart in Prague was opened in 1956. Here Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart lived during his stay in Prague, he finished his Opera “don Giovanni”. This house belonged to the spouses by Uskovym who bought it in the 18th century. František Xaver dušek was good and well-known Czech composer, and his wife was a singer. Therefore, the Museum is devoted not only to Mozart but also the spouses who has dedicated his life to music.
Mozart came to their house in 1787. In addition to the Opera “don Giovanni”, premiere of which was held in Prague, Mozart wrote here, “Bella MIA Fiamma, Addio”, by dedicating this concert stage Josefina Duskova. But it was not the only visit of Mozart to the present the Museum a “Bertramka”. He came here in 1789 and 1791 years, to prepare and trace the staging of his operas.
The Museum is opened 7 exhibition halls, which will tell visitors about the history of the Museum. In one of the halls you can see the environment of the 18th century, when Mozart lived in this house. All items and furniture in this room is permeated with music.
The house-Museum of Mozart is a huge amount of items belonging to the composer. This and various letters, documents, engravings, and even musical instruments. But the main exhibit of the Museum is a 13 hair, which was owned by the great Wolfgang Amadeus.
Recently, the house-Museum of Mozart in Prague and was refurbished and acquired a completely different look. Those who worked on the restoration, faced with various problems, one of which was too large number of exhibits. In the Museum, too little place to put everything about Mozart and Czech music. Don’t forget that the Museum tells us not only about the Austrian composer, but also about spouses Ushkovyh, and the development of Czech music in General.
The last few years on “Bertramka” hosts a variety of concerts and performances. To get to these events very difficult. There are going to music, talking on the topic of art, I bow before Mozart and his talent.
