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.

Several years ago, a miracle happened to Jura Hradil. This devotee of the electronic nu jazz alternative came to the hilly Carpathian landscape somewhere on the border between Moravia and Slovakia and heard a song, firstly one, then two, then hundreds. It wasn't a blurry echo of old times, but the bright tone of a Horňácko song.  more

Originally, it was supposed to be the third part of the YM project, in which the individual members of the group Květy make records of their solo albums of different genres, and their colleagues from the band accompany them. After Lorenzovi hoši [Lorenzo´s Boys] by Martin Kyšperský in country style and after the electronic Japonec [The Japanese Guy] by Aleš Pilgr, Ondřej Kyas´s Solárium [The Sunbed] was hard to classify concerning its genre category. As a solo record, with only an episode contribution by Aleš Pilgr and without any playing participation of Martin Kyšperský.  more

The small Ponava music club has been renowned in Brno last several years for its very high quality music production. Here and there, its diverse programme also features folklore projects. On Thursday, a duo of the well-known multi-instrumentalist Marian Friedl and the Lachian vocalist Sabrina Pasičnyk performed on this stage.  more

While trumpeter Jiří Kotača is known to the Brno jazz audience mainly as the bandmaster of the progressive big band Cotatcha Orchestra, on his first CD he presents himself with a different formation. He had met the Swedish guitarist Alf Carlsson during his studies in the Netherlands, and then they met up again and founded their band during Alf's tourist trip to the Czech Republic. Then they invited two very talented Slovak players to a joint trip for music, drummer Kristián Kuruc and double bass player Peter Korman, who is a member of Kotača's big band. This international formation plays Kotača's and Carlsson's original compositions and gets more or less inspired by Moravian, Slovak and above all Scandinavian folklore. The album was given the name Journeys, because journeys – to music, to knowledge and to the heart of souls – are what the life of not only this band revolves around.  more

With the return to the Janáček Theatre after three years and with the first foreshadowing of the upcoming celebrations of the 250th anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven's birth, the Brno Philharmonic entered the new year with its traditional, already the 65th New Year concert in history. For this occasion, it chose a programme truly magnificent and appropriate, crowned by the European-famous Ode to Joy. The whole gala evening took place under the baton of Chief Conductor Dennis Russell Davies.  more
