Contemporary music is a very important part of the programme of this concert. Pavel Zemek Novák’s Symphony already refers in its title to the Marian apparition in Medjugorje, Herzegovina. It is a 25-minute long piece with a specific form of 33 movements. It alternates rhythmic and tense sections with magical and enchanting parts. The piece is a great example of contemporary music by an author with a very distinctive approach. It is written in a comprehensible, almost classical manner.

As the title of Shostakovich’s Prelude and Fugue suggests, the composer was inspired by J.S. Bach and his Well-Tempered Clavier. Like Bach, he wrote a cycle of 24 preludes and fugues. This time we hear only one movement from it in an arrangement for chamber concert.

Bohuslav Martinů composed the Partita for String Orchestra in 1931 during his several stays in Paris. This pleasant and upbeat work is inspired by the works of the giants of the Parisian musical world of the time – Stravinsky and Honneger, but also by jazz.

The chamber ensamble will be conducted by young and talented conductor Maroš Potokár. At the piano will sit Nikol Bóková.
