Brno bass singer Richard Novák will be accompanied during his recital by Kostiantyn Tyshko and Vladimír Krátký. Audience will be treated to Die schöne Magelone by Johannes Brahms.
Brahms's Die schöne Magelone is considered to be the most important rendering of the late-medieval story about the love of beautiful Magelona and knight Peter. At the end of the 18th century it was dramatised by the German romantic playwright and poet Ludwig Tieck. Several decades later, Johannes Brahms composed music for fifteen romances from this epic. At the personal request of Richard Novák, this song cycle will be performed in collaboration with young piano player Kostiantyn Tyshko as part of the Ensemble Opera Diversa chamber concert. Excerpts from the epic will be recited in Czech translation by Vladimír Krátký, member of the drama section of the National Theatre in Brno. The recital is announced to take place on 25 February 2019 at 7 pm at the Convent of Merciful Brothers in Brno.
