Berlin-based producer Boys Noize and the Fléda Club’s anniversary celebrations

German DJ and producer Boys Noize will present his new album +/- in Brno. This prominent personality of the electronic scene will perform at the Fléda Club as part of the celebration of the club’s 20th anniversary. The work of this musician, innovative in terms of genre, is on the border of techno, house and electro-pop.

Boys Noize is one of the most respected electronic producers of his generation. During a career spanning nearly two decades, he has worked with such luminaries as A$AP Rocky, Snoop Dogg, Bon Iver, Chance The Rapper and Tommy Cash. Currently, after a five-year hiatus, he is releasing his anticipated down-the-line album entitled +/-. “It’s probably one of the records that I put the most effort into - the artwork, the music, simply everything,” Boys Noize explains in an interview with Billboard magazine, adding: “I'm showing so many new and different things. My DJ sets are mainly techno and house. I don’t think people expected me to make a record like this, but for me it’s a refreshing thing.” Boys Noize will perform on 12th November 2021 at 9 p.m. at Fléda Club.

Alex Ridha aka Boys Noize is one of the most anticipated guests of FXX, that is, the birthday celebration season. In addition to its re-opening, the Fléda Club celebrates twenty years of its existence this year. “Boys Noize is one of the most influential producers of our time. It’s a genre chameleon, but one that retains a clear signature. That’s true whether he’s producing for Depeche Mode or Ty Dolla $ign, whose song Midnight Hour was nominated for a Grammy award,” adds artistic administrator Marie Butula Cichá. The core of Boys Noize’s work is techno and house. It is his dark bangers like “Overthrow” or “Cerebral” through which the German musician has won fans around the world. They also form the backbone of his DJ sets acclaimed by his fans as well as reviewers.

Ridha made his debut as a DJ at the age of 15. His rich career to date includes five studio albums, several mixtapes, singles and remixes. He has been crisscrossing the world with his mesmerizingly lively show. He is regularly featured at major festivals such as Coachella and Glastonbury. At the same time, he is still welcome in underground meccas like Berghain. His new album +/- (pronounced “Polarity”) was released in September via his own respected label BOYSNOIZE RECORDSRidha’s guests this time include alt-pop artists such as Rico Nasty, Tommy Cash, Corbin and ABRA.

After the first successful concert of the Concentus Moraviae festival’s resident ensemble at the castle in Slavkov, the ensemble led by violinist Pavel Fischer expanded to include pianist Katya Apekisheva and on Sunday, 12 June, in the Great Hall of Mikulov Castle, presented an unknown face of the musical language of Hungarian composer Béla Bartók with his Piano Quintet in C Major. Along with Fischer and Apekisheva, the concert also featured violinist Markéta Janoušková, violist Diede Verpoest, and cellist Erich Oskar Hüttermore

Last year’s 100th anniversary of Gustav Brom’s birth still resonates on the domestic jazz scene. At the very end of 2021, a 4-CD set entitled “Gustav Brom – 100 Years” was released, offering a cross-section of the orchestra’s repertoire, from songwriting to jazz to intersections with contemporary classical music. Alongside this, an album charting the Brom Orchestra’s long-standing collaboration with Karel Velebný has also appeared on the same label (Indies Happy Trails). Radio editor, jazz musician, and teacher Jan Dalecký was one of the producers of both albums.  more

In its twenty-seven years of existence, the Concentus Moraviae International Music Festival has been held in a number of unusual and unique places. Sunday's program Homo Sapiens – The Story of Rhythm in Velké Meziříčí has the potential to be one of the most memorable concerts of the festival. On June 5, OK Percussion Duo musicians Martin Opršál and Martin Kleibl, together with guests and students Tomáš Javora and Kryštof Vašíček performed in the normally inaccessible premises of the New Synagogue, which has served as a center of affordable shopping for years. The concert was held in cooperation with the European Festival of Philosophy, the Jewish Community of Brno, and the town of Velké Meziříčí. At the same time, it was part of the project From the Shopping Center to the Cultural Communitymore

This year’s 27th edition of the international music festival Concentus Moraviae is still at the beginning of its almost month-long program, yet in terms of dramaturgy it is not holding back at all. After the opening featuring Argentinian and Uruguayan tango in Boskovice and Balkan music in Ivančice, the festival brought the Arcadia String Quartet to the atrium of the town hall in Kyjov on Thursday 2 June, where they performed the String Octet in C Major by Romanian composer George Enescu together with their friends from the Transylvanian Philharmonic Orchestra. In addition to the members of the quartet (violinists Ana TörökRăsvan Dumitru, violist Traian Boală and cellist Zsolt Török), there were also violinists Vlad RăceuValentin Șerban, violist Mihai Oșvat and cellist Ștefan Cazacu. The concert was held under the auspices of the Ambassador of Romania to the Czech Republic, H.E. Antoaneta Barta.  more

We met violinist Pavel Fischer at the Budějovická metro station in Prague, and on the way to the Dobeška Theater we managed to discuss his holiday in Italy. At the time, we were already working out the subtitle of this year's Concentus Moraviae festival “From Roots to the Future”. Next to Dobeška, where the Sklep Theater plays, is what we call the “woodshed”, where the Škampa Quartet has been rehearsing for thirty-five years. Pavel Fischer was a founding member of the ensemble which he left at a time when it was enjoying one international success after another. As he says, he was attracted by greater musical freedom and a quieter life. At Dobeška, after our interview, he had a concert with cellist Olin Nejezchleba and guitarist Norbi Kovács. We started with him, although our main topic was Fischer's residency at this year's Concentus Moraviae.  more
