The project Moravské hlasy – východní Morava is looking for support

Jiří Plocek’s project follows up on the existing album Moravské hlasy - jižní Morava (“Moravian voices – South Moravia”), which was released at the end of 2017. The campaign for the support of the next CD will be taking place up to the end of 2018.

The CD Moravské hlasy - východní Morava (“Moravian voices – eastern Moravia”) is to be prepared and published from January to June 2019 and follows up on the first CD Moravské hlasy - jižní Morava. The project sets the target to capture the unusual and unique phenomenon of Moravian song in areas where it manifests itself most. A comprehensive booklet will be part of the recording. For the full covering of the costs of the production, it is necessary to gather a minimum of 60 000 CZK before the start of the project. The support campaign will be taking place up to the end of this year.

You can use one of the following methods for support:

1. Subscription:

1 CD = 400 CZK (including postage and packing) will be sent immediately after publication to the postal address of the buyer. Write the address in the e-mail message to the address, where you will receive payment and order confirmation.

The subscription of a larger amount: 2 CD’s = 800 CZK, for three or more CD’s, the price goes down to one CD for 350 CZK (including postage and packing).

2. Gifts and sponsoring:

Here you can send any sum of money for the project. Also send information about the payment to the address:

The Slovak group Kiero Grande, two Polish bands and the Brno musician Jan Fic with his solo project progressed from the competition Blues Aperitiv to the international festival Blues Alive in Šumperk. Jan, or Honza as he is informally called, who under the label Red Bird Instruments makes cigar box guitars and other instruments, is otherwise known as the frontman of The Weathermakers, playing their raw blues even at Porta. And in several festivals he appeared as leader of the mock country group The Honzíci. The interview that follows took place on the occasion of the release of the solo album Město (City), which Jan Fic together with the producer Martin Kyšperský officially presented on 17 December in Brno’s Stereo – Vinyl Culture Shop.  more

The last week full of musical events culminated in the final round of the Central European Jazz Competition organised by the “neighbouring” jazz festivals – JazzFestBrno and Poysdorf Jazz & Wine. This cross-border musical project has a promising future: the first year of the jazz competition in its final afternoon offered six half-hour blocks of the finalists, who were a surprise with their musical range and the quality of their musicianship.  more

The main programme focus of this year’s Janáček Brno 2018 international festival is the performance of all of the composer’s musical-dramatic works. After the popular success of Káťa Kabanová and the precisely staged The Makropulos Affair yesterday it was the turn of the Polish ensemble Teatr Wielki from Poznan with a performance of Jenůfa, a work which, twelve years after its Brno premiere in 1904 opened the doors to the international musical scene to Leoš Janáček.  more

Many diverse and qualitatively varied opera performances were heard at the festival Janáček Brno 2018. Every now and then a production appears that divides Brno audiences into two irreconcilable camps, one overjoyed by the innovativeness, many non-musical references and bold direction, while the others lament the illogical symbolism, departures from the libretto, seeing it even as a slap in the face of the composer. The song cycle The Diary of One Who Disappeared from the Belgian ensemble Muziektheater Transparant as directed by Ivo van Hove and with compositional annotations by Annelies Van Parys is controversial in the true sense of the word. The scenographer Jan Versweyveld, the costume designer An D’Huys and the dramaturge Krystian Lada also took part in this new stage form. The solo roles were taken by Ed Lyon, Marie Hamard and Hugo Koolschijn, accompanied on the piano by Lada Valešová and the choral academy De Munt/La Monnaie also took part in the production. The Diary of One Who Disappeared was performed yesterday in the hall of the Mahen Theatre.  more

The second of the accompanying folk concerts of the Janáček Brno festival took place at the Reduta Theatre. And it seems that the bar, set by the first concert, has remained high. The show, called Chodníčky k lidové písni (“Roads to folksong”) was to present one of Janáček’s favourite regions in Slovácko – Horňácko – to the audience. This job was taken on by a cimbalom band with the fitting name of Musica Folklorica.  more
