Amadeus MozArt: A work by three choreographers on one stage

Amadeus MozArt is a ballet production by three contemporary choreographers, inspired by the works and personality of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. This project was created from the choreography and direction of Carolina Isach, Uladzimir Ivanou and Dan Datcu. The premiere will take place in the Reduta Theatre, which has a close connection with the figure of the composer.

Amadeus MozArt is divided into three parts, each the work of a contemporary choreographer. The production opens with Metanoia by Uladzimir Ivanou. The term metanoia can be translated as penance, which is what the choreographer called his thumbnail sketch focusing on the relationship between Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Constanze Weber and his father Leopold Mozart. The conflict that arose between father and son after Amadeus left for Vienna peaked with his marriage to Constanze. Relations were not renewed between son and father up to the death of Leopold. This hit Amadeus hard, regardless of the bitterness of the last years, or rather because of it. Amadeus was submerged in feelings of guilt for having left the father who raised him and gave him his musical education and did everything to try to help him be a success.

The second part of the production is Opus Amadei in the choreographic conception and direction of Dan Datcu.

This choreography at first glance appears closer to abstraction, but the content bears especially the Mozartian impression on the author, of his brilliant music. Mozart's gift and the ability to express and convey the deepest feelings of who we are, who we were and who we will be. Sadness, love, eroticism, fear, joy and irony.

The third piece is a solipsistic production by the Spanish choreographer Carolina Isach. The name of the choreography, Solipsistic, is based on the philosophical term ‘solipsism’ describing an extreme form of subjectivism based on the idea that there is only my consciousness and nothing else. As the motto for her creations the choreographer has chosen a kind of challenge, “Open your senses”.

The premiere will take place on 23 May 2018 at 7 p.m. in the Reduta Theatre.

The municipal council of Velká nad Veličkou decided already in mid-April that this year's Horňácké Festivities (original name: Horňácké slavnosti) would not take place on the traditional dates around the feast of St. Mary Magdalene, and their scope, previously meant to be of three to five days, would also be modified. Obviously, it was impossible to foresee the development of lockdown measures towards the third week of July, but musicians from the Horňácko district tried to come up with at least a partial alternative solution in order to maintain continuity. Eventually, two concerts were officially held on two consecutive Saturdays:  On 18 July,  live broadcast of a public radio recording of Czech Radio Brno under the title Hrajte že ně, hrajte aneb Horňácké trochu jinak (Play for Me, or Horňácké Festivities in a Slightly Different Fashion) took place at the Culture House in Velká nad Veličkou. A week later, at a sports complex in Javorník, a traditional competition for "the biggest expert on Horňácko peasant songs" was held under the auspices of the Horňácko Dulcimer Band of Libor Sup. Needless to say, both events have found their spectators and listeners.  more

The Brno-based rock band Kulturní úderka (which translates loosely as "Culture Brigade"), led by singer and guitarist Štěpán Dokoupil, did not keep its fans waiting for too long this time. While there was a fifteen-year break between their first and second albums, the new album Black Metall was released less than two years after the previous album Sarajevská Katarzija (Sarajevo Catharsis). The name of the new album must be handled with care. Úderka has never had anything to do with black metal as a music genre. And once again, we are treated not to metal, but to relatively raw rock, which in some moments is pleasantly softened by the keyboard of Omer Blentič, or the trumpet of their guest artist Jan Kozelek.  more

Cultural life has endeavoured to move into a sterile and "life-safe" social networking environment in an unequal struggle against the viral phantasm and government lockdown regulations. In the darkest months, music institutions competed with one another in staging recordings of memorable concerts, and major opera houses broadcast to the world those of their performances that gained the most success from spectators.  more

Shortly before the outbreak of the coronavirus crisis, the Brno-based group Plum Dumplings released a new album. As opposed to their official debut L'épitaphe des papillons (The Epitome of Butterflies, 2014), sung in French, the band went for Czech lyrics this time. We are talking to the band's vocalist, who presents herself as Adéla Polka.  more

Oldřich Veselý, a Brno-based singer, composer and keyboard player, died in January 2018. In February 2019, the 10th Brno Beatfest, dedicated to his memory, took place in the Semilasso music hall. And a year later, a CD recording of this concert was released under the title Malý princ [The Little Prince], complemented by several bonus items.  more
