The summer of 2002 was not very lucky for the festival, but especially for Český Krumlov. After several concerts and heavy rain, the city was hit by a catastrophic flood. We were forced to interrupt the festival and it was uncertain whether it would continue. We haven’t played five of the originally planned nineteen concerts. However, the weather improved, the water receded and the last few concerts could take place. The end of the festival belonged to the Chinese violinist Bin Huang and the Czech Philharmonic under the direction of conductor Vladimír Válek. These artists gave up royalties in favor of the city, their financial resources were joined by the companies present and, of course, the festival. He donated the proceeds from the entrance concert to the citizens of Český Krumlov living in the most affected Parkán Street.
