The Prague Spring International Music Festival (in Czech Pražské jaro) was founded in Prague in 1946. The great Czech conductor, an artistic director of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra Rafael Kubelík, a pianist Rudolf Firkušný and president Edvard Beneš stood at its cradle in the first postwar year. Top soloists, singers and conductors have participated in it since its inception. In 1946 and 1947, a later celebrated conductor and composer Leonard Bernstein made his European debut here. A violin virtuoso David Oistrakh, a pianist Sviatoslav Richter and a cellist Mstislav Rostropovich, the winner of the international competition of young talents, which has taken place at the festival since its second year in the year 1947, annually came from Russia to Prague.
