C2 Listen

What’s worse that could happen to you at a concert than not being able to hear? Hear poorly, little or not at all? The second concert of cycle C will feature Mambo from the musical West Side Story or perhaps the sixth movement from the cantata Carmina Burana. Just sit back and immerse yourself in what you love…


Leonard Bernstein
Mambo, Part 4 from Symphonic Dances from the musical West Side Story

Charles Ives
The Unanswered Question

and more


Markéta Matulová – accompanying words
Lenka Jaborská – conception and direction
Janáček Philharmonic Ostrava
Maroš Potokár – conductor


Did you hear that? Did you hear it? Where did I hear it? Was it heard? Calm down and listen carefully. You’ll hear the seemingly inaudible, the seemingly tuneless at first hearing, the seemingly rhythmically uncountable at first count. Music contains a wealth of sounds, melodies, and rhythms, but also silence and stillness. Is everyone in the orchestra audible enough? And does the conductor hear everyone? Put your ears up and listen.
