Music for Sirens is a unique project that saw contemporary Czech composers writing new pieces, all of which are to be played during the regular monthly testing of the emergency sirens. Many of them were composed for particular environments or situations. In 2019–2021, every first Wednesday of the month, we performed world premieres of twenty such pieces and the Czech Radio Vltava brought them to you through a live broadcast – not just on the airwaves but also as a live video stream on Facebook.

Music for Sirens won the very prestigious Prix Italia prize in June 2021!

Winning work among the first ten compositions: Slavomír Hořínka – Rejoice!
Winning work among the second ten compositions: Petr Hora – A River Call
