The Croatian Pianist Maksim Mrvica Brings His New Album to Brno

In April the Croatian pianist Maksim Mrvica will once more be returning to the Czech Republic. He will be presenting his new album The New Silk Road in Brno’s Sono Centre.

The Croatian pianist Maksim Mrvica began to play the piano at the age of nine and at eleven he gave his first concert as a soloist with an orchestra. During his career to date he has won many awards at prestigious music competitions. For his first album he received four Porin prizes. Mrvica received his musical education at conservatories in Croatia, Hungary and France. He has twelve albums in his portfolio now.

His concert programme on this year’s tour is made up of his classical and modern repertoire, and a substantial part of his performances will be taken from Mrvica’s new album The New Silk Road, which came out this year in February.

The concert will take place on 19 April 2018 from 8 p.m. in the Sono Centre.

Two sold-out concerts launched on Saturday filled-up the hall of the Koruna cinema in Břeclav, where the Národopisný soubor Břeclavan [Břeclavan Ethnographic Ensemble] celebrated its 65th anniversary and joined thus the series of jubilee folklore ensembles this year. The afternoon concert had to be eventually added because of the huge audience acclaim, which only confirms that in South Moravia folklore is still widely known and enjoys unremitting popularity.  more

The third event of this year's Moravian Autumn festival was transferred to a theatre stage. The event was made happen by Terén, which is a platform acting as a third stage of the Centre of Experimental Theatre, right after the Goose on a String and HaDivadlo theatres. And it was on this particular stage of the Goose on a String where the world premiere of a stage production of Oedipus by André Gide took place yesterday. Composer Bohuslav Martinů stands behind its equally important incidental music.  more

The jubilee 50th Moravian Autumn music festival started yesterday at Bobycentrum in Brno with a concert performance of the minimalist opera Einstein on the Beach by composer Philip Glass and director Robert Wilson. The concert version was created by collaboration of visual artist Germaine Kruip, Suzanne Vega and Ictus Ensemble and Collegium Vocale Gent. Although only the music remained from the previously stage show, the length of the concert itself was comparable with the opera work. Hence, the evening lasted almost four hours.  more
