Best venue for Vivaldi Four Seasons in Prague?

I have purchased tickets for an August 1st concert and thought that I had selected the 8pm concert in the Cathedral of St Clement. Looking at my tickets, I see that I mistakenly selected the 7pm concert in the Klementinum Mirror Hall. Should I make the effort to correct my mistake or are both venues of equal interest/beauty/acoustic quality?

The Klementinum Mirror Chapel is in the cathedral. Since the Vivaldi works are chamber works, should be a perfect venue.

If this is the Mirror Chapel then it is in the Klementinum but separated from ST Clements. If you like a smaller venue then the Mirror Chapel is fine. If you prefer a grand Baroque church (Cathedral since 1996) the ST Clements should be your choice for a beautiful venue with great acoustics.

Hi we just did this last week. I was a little disappointed when we arrived as it was fairly small and there were only 4 chairs set up for the musicians.
There ended up also being an opera singer and an organist.
I am happy to say it was great! The people playing were incredible and the acoustics were amazing. It was only an hour, which for us, was perfect and part of the reason we chose it.

Thanks everyone! I’ve decided to stay with the Mirror Hall and will report back!

We were at the Mirror Chapel just last week. Beautiful venue; talented musicians! Since it's on the smaller side, the Mirror Chapel provides an up-close listening and viewing experience. I highly recommend it!
