Simona Šaturová – soprano
Marek Kozák – piano


Slovak soprano Simona Šaturová and Czech pianist Marek Kozák will present the atmosphere of the night in their song recital.

The evening, which will offer a cross-section of nocturne compositions by composers from the end of the 18th century to the 20th century, will open with Mozart’s Evening Remembrance of Laura from 1787. Mozart accompanied the elegant verses with an almost romantic musical expression that in many ways foreshadows the songwriting of Franz Schubert. Of his vast number of more than six hundred songs, we will hear The Little Stop and the Song of the Nightingale.

The song Over the Country a Light Sleep Presides, presents the inner world of the young and unhappily in love Antonín Dvořák, while his Lullaby from Two Songs on Folk Texts, written in 1885 during a visit to England, is already the work of a mature master. The evening will also be enriched by the Piano Nocturne in D flat major, Op. 27 No. 2, one of Fryderyk Chopin’s most popular compositions. Claude Debussy’s three early songs Starry Night, Beautiful Evening and Moonlight from the 1880s, although not yet dressed in impressionistic garb, do not lack the French charm and elegance that have kept them in the repertoire of the world’s singers to this day. American composer Samuel Barber’s This Shining Night from 1938 will signal the climax of the evening, which will be devoted to the songs of Richard Strauss.
