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:

If the gift is larger than 500 CZK, you will receive a CD after its publication. With larger amounts it is possible to agree individually on the number of CDs.

After agreement it is also possible to use advertisement services (placing of logo).

Evenings of  the cycle named Music Stocktaking of the Brno-based orchestra Ensemble Opera Diversa regularly bring to light various half-forgotten works by Czech composers. This Tuesday's concert in the concert hall of the Convent of Merciful Brother [Konvent Milosrdných bratří] became a commemorative tribute to the anniversary of the tragic years 1939 and 1969. Violinist Milan Paľa and pianists Kristýna Znamenáčková and Lucie Pokorná performed alongside the orchestra. The performance was conducted by the permanent conductor of the orchestra Gabriela Tardonová.  more

The ensemble Šafrán from Moravian Slovakia is already a traditional organiser of the Brno “fašank“. This event, in the spirit of folk traditions, always takes place on Tuesday before Ash Wednesday and it marks the beginning of Christian fasting. Its roots go back to the pagan times, but it is now part of Christian feasts almost all over the world. Marches of masks in various regions of Moravia are called končiny, masopust, fašanek or, for example, šibřinky. Its  ensemble parallel in Brno tries to stick to the folk pattern. It begins with a parade in  Náměstí svobody Square. This year it continued through the Alfa Mall to the market building at the Cabbage Market. The end of the programme was performed by the ensemble Lučina, which showed the audience the so-called burial of a double bass. It is a custom consisting in a staged burial of this musical instrument, symbolising  the end of entertainment, calming down and preparing for Easter.  more

"In the past, old people used to be as old as we allegedly are today" sings Slávek Janoušek in his song Alzheimer and Parkinson. The songwriter, who celebrated his 65th birthday last September, found aging as an extremely powerful theme for his new album. Tohle je vzkaz [This Is a Message] is an album not only about incrementing years of age, but also about how we increasingly appreciate our families and our  roots as we “grow old“. Although we can find very strong moments in all Janoušek's albums, Tohle je vzkaz can be perceived as the third part of the trilogy of his most powerful recordings – Kdo  to zavinil [Whose Fault  Is It] (1988), Tancuj a zpívej [Dance and Sing] (1997) and Tohle je vzkaz [This Is a Message] (2018).  more

Both bodies were conducted by the artistic director Vladimír Maňas. In yesterday’s programme there were both proven works and unknown ones by rarely performed European composers.  more
