The band Poletíme? is preparing a live recording of their greatest hits called “Best of do gramofonu”

The band Poletíme? returns to the Brno club Fléda on the occasion of recording a new album. The album BEST OF DO GRAMOFONU (Best of, for the turntable) will map the greatest hits in the fifteen years of the band’s existence. Fans will get a unique chance to be part of the live recording in two concert days.

The Brno formation Poletíme? led by singer and lyricist Rudolf Brančovský plays, in their own words, “original banjo punk future jazz country in the spirit of Turbochanson”. They boast a wide range of instruments from banjo to saxophone to violin.

After fifteen years, it’s time for a “Best of” album, and fans will have the opportunity to be a part of it. On two nights, 15th and 16th February, their greatest hits will be performed at Fléda, and the recording of the BEST OF DO GRAMOFON album will also take place. The sixth recording is being made four years after the release of the last one and will bring a cross-section of the band’s musical creations. Czech Television will also be present at the second concert to record the entire concert. The concerts are announced for 15 and 16 February 2023 at 8:30 pm in the Fléda Club.

“Recording a concert with Poletíme? was in the plan for years. I’m glad that it’s happening now after fifteen years of existence. The songs have gotten more vigorous arrangements and tempos over the years. The strength of our band is the concerts. I believe that this way we will be able to capture the atmosphere which is exceptional especially at Fléda,” Brančovský concludes.

Rudolf Brančovský met his bandmates in an evangelical congregation, where they formed a four-piece band in 2007. A year later, they released their debut album Jednoduché písničky o složitém životě (Simple Songs about Complex Life – 2008). After the release of Turbošansón (2014), Vít Kraváček (bass) and Josef Zámečník (banjo) joined the band. In 2016, they went on a joint tour with Wohnout and a year later with Divoký Bill. Their latest album “Chce to hit!” was released in 2018 with eight members with whom they still play today.

Drama, philosophy, and an interestingly outlined psychology of works was offered up by the most recent big concert of the Brno Philharmonic at the Janáček Theatre. The listener-friendly programme, aptly titled Ancient Nordic Tales, was staged and performed with the orchestra by Danish conductor Michael Schønwandt (*1953), currently chief conductor of the Orchestra of the National Opera Montpellier. His fondness for promoting contemporary composers is reflected in the dramaturgy itself. In addition to well-known works by Edvard Grieg and Jean Sibelius, the audience had the opportunity to get acquainted with Danish composer Hans Abrahamsen (*1952). American soprano Nicole Chevalier also introduced her works to the audience.  more

Martin Kyšperský and Aleš Pilgr recently celebrated twenty years of cooperation in the Květy (Flowers) group. While the bandmates and instruments around them have changed over the two decades, the two have remained a constant force in one of Brno's most essential bands of the century. This constant force, however, has been a dynamic one, as the two protagonists alternate between different instruments and approaches. Martin switches from the guitar to other instruments, and Aleš has gone from being a drummer to a double bassist and will be a drummer again from 2023. This context is then also important for understanding the new album Duo, which Kyšperský and Pilgr recorded as, well, a duo.  more

The latest addition to the concert series organized by the Brno-based Ensemble Opera Diversa is a chamber recital by violinist Milan Paľa and pianist Katarína Paľová entitled “Repentance”. The program, which took place on Sunday 30 October at Villa Stiassni, presented works by composers Valentin Bibik and the recently deceased Roman Berger, whose Adagio No. 2 "Repentance" (Pokánie) inspired the title of the evening.  more

Lidověk is the first solo album by Matěj Metoděj Štrunc, a young actor, singer and musician originally from Brno, frontman of the band Ateliér, and son of dulcimer player Dalibor and violinist Katerina Štrunc from the bands Cimbal Classic and Javory. The apple really did not fall far from the tree, but at the same time it came closer to other trees and colored itself with original colors.  more

The Brazilian singer-songwriter with (not only) Japanese roots Luiz Murá first appeared in Moravia five years ago, when he performed at the Folk Holidays in Náměšt' with his then international band Miramundo. This summer he came to Brno. Not as a musician, but as an organizer of club concerts in Barcelona, where he has been living for the last few years. As an official foreign delegate he participated in the two-day Central European Jazz Showcase at the Husa na provázku theatre. During his stay in Brno, we asked the likeable world traveler, who is still first and foremost a musician, a few questions. Not least because Luiz's previous stay in Moravia was reflected in his latest solo album.  more
