Plum Dumplings will release their new album Jiný místo

The Brno band Plum Dumplings is preparing to release their new album Jiný místo [Another place] in the Kabinet Múz. As a guest, Kittchen will appear.

The rock-alternative group Plum Dumplings recorded the album Jiný místo  in cooperation with producer Tomáš Neuwerth at the end of the year 2019. As opposed to the band's previous production, the newly recorded songs are sung in the Czech language (the last album L'épitaphe des papillons was in French). “The transition to the Czech language is in a way liberating, but at the same time baring. A lot could be hidden behind the French, and more important was rather the melody of singing and lyrics, while with the Czech I feel a much greater closeness to the listener, who can thus better identify himself or herself with the story or the feeling that the lyrics can express. At the same time, the Czech language offers me different melodic possibilities,” says the author of the lyrics and vocalist Adéla Polka for the Full Moon magazine. The album is being released on a vinyl record and also in electronic form. Its distribution is provided by the publishing house Indies Scope.

The release of the album will be carried out on 22 January 2020 from 20:00 p.m. in the Kabinet Múz.

On Friday 14 February, the Sono Centre in Brno hosted a genre-diversified festival, which was also a celebration of three decades of activity of three publishing branches, which we associate with the original simple name Indies Records. Over the years, Indies Records has divided itself into three separate labels with three distinct edition catalogues – Indies MG, Indies Scope and Indies Happy Trails, which are operated by the personalities of Miloš Gruber, Milan Páleš and Jaromír Kratochvíl.  more

A fateful comedy, the third part of a musical trilogy or a fantasy musical. These attributes define Paradise, a new authorial piece from the workshop of Zdenek Merta and Stanislav Moša. Their ninth joint work in the field of music theatre was premiered yesterday on the big stage of the Brno City Theatre. The result is embarrassing.  more

Director, librettist and stage designer David Radok and composer, but also chief conductor of the opera ensemble Marko Ivanović created the authorial work for the opera ensemble of the National Theatre Brno. The opera The Monument, which was premiered yesterday, tells the story of sculptor Otakar Švec (1892–1955), whose design in 1955 was a portent of Stalin's monument at Letná. The title roles in the Janáček Theatre were performed by: Stanislav Sem (Sculptor), Markéta Cukrová (Wife), Roman Hoza (Colleague) and Ondřej Koplík (Minister of Culture). The solo parts were complemented by the Opera Choir, the Czech Academic Choir and the Brno Children's Choir. The Janáček Opera Orchestra was directed by the author of the music Marko Ivanović.  more

On the next day after the powerful experience I had gotten from the performance of Requiem by the Armenian composer Tigran Mansurian, I had the opportunity to meet its creator. The fragile, gentle and sincere music thus foreshadowed me of its author, with whom I spent a few precious moments in the director's lounge of the Besední dům in Brno in a very friendly conversation.  more

If a band releases a new album after ten years and calls it Dej si čas [Take Your Time], it sounds like a pleasant self-irony. But what is ten years against delays of other bands, whose fans had to wait for new albums for eighteen (AG Flek) or even thirty years (Progres 2). For Mošny, it was said that the new album started to emerge a few years ago, but the group wanted to include some brand new songs, which they needed to rehearse and finish.  more
