Help by looking for note materials of L. Stokowski

Please allow us to introduce ourself:
The Smetana´s Litomyšl International Opera festival (founded in 1949) is the second oldest music festival. It is also the largest open-air festival of classical music held in this country. Smetana´s Litomyšl takes place each year over two consecutive long weekends at the end of June and the beginning of July. The center of festival activities is Litomyšl castle, a national cultural landmark. While it is music by smetana and orther Czech composers that forms the backbone of the festival´s program, there is room here for good music of all kinds, regardless of genre. As a rule, the emphasis is placed on works in which the vocal part dominates (opera, oratorios, cantats, vocal recitlas and choral concerts), but this does not mean that orchestral or chamber music is neglected. the most renowned Czech opera companies, orchestras and soloists regularly take part in the festival, and important foreign performers heve been appearing here more and more often. The Smetana´s Litomyšl International Opera Festival is a member of the prestigious Czech Association of Music Festivals, and Litomyšl is likewise the headquarters of this institution.
