The Young Gods will bring their new album to Brno

The Young Gods, representatives of industrial rock, will visit the Czech Republic once again and come to Brno. This Swiss trio will bring their album Data Mirage Tangram. This record, full of audio experiments, is now being released after a nine-year break. The band's founding member, programmer Cesare Pizzi, who has now returned to the band, also contributed to the recording of the album.

The history of The Young Gods started to be written in Geneva in 1985. It was there that the newly formed band, whose name was inspired by the early EP of related guitar stars Swans, held its first concerts. Now The Young Gods is back on stage in grand style. The original member, electronic programmer Cesare Pizzi, returned to the line-up. The new album, Data Mirage Tangram, is now being released after almost a decade also with his contribution. "It was a long break, because in 2011 two members decided to go their own way. It took us some time to decide how to move on. And then Cesare Pizzi returned,” explains singer Franz Treichler for Academy Music Group.

This Swiss trio is one of the most influential bands of the industrial scene of the last decades. Hard guitar genre icons such as Nine Inch Nails and Faith No More stem from their music. However, The Young Gods' musical work has a much greater overlap when they were mentioned by stars of the pop  scene such as U2 or David Bowie, one of the most important musical personalities ever. The music of The Young Gods themselves was, according to Treichler, influenced mainly by Einstürzende Neubauten.

The Young Gods will present their new album to Brno on 7 June 2019 from 19:00 in the Fléda Music Club.

The Jerusalem Quartet is one of the world's leading quartet performers for many years and is currently one of the most cited chamber music ensembles. At the Concentus Moraviae festival, violinists Alexander Pavlovsky, Sergei Bresler, violist Ori Kam and cellist Kyril Zlotnikov performed in the Great Chateau of Mikulov Castle with a programme stretching in time from Joseph Haydn up to Béla Bartók. The concert was held under the auspices of the Israeli Ambassador to the Czech Republic, HE Daniel Meron.  more

Man does not live by classical music alone, as the Epoque Quartet, consisting of violinists David Pokorný, Vladimír Klánský, violist Vladimír Kroupa and cellist Vít Petrášek has been convincing us for twenty years already. For their Saturday concert, staged as part of the Concentus Moraviae festival, which took place in the foyer of the Pasáž theatre in Třebíč, the musicians also invited bass clarinettist Petr Valášek, pianist Karel Košárek and percussionist Oleg Sokolov. The programme of the evening consisted entirely of works by contemporary authors flirting in their compositions not only with musical minimalism, but also with jazz and other popular genres.  more

The title of this album is deceiving. Although the group Šarivary uses the Czech phonetic transcription of the French expressions charivari and mélange, it is not composed of any Czechs. The quartet that got together in Brno is headed by French singer, flutist and accordionist Aude Martin and American guitarist and singer Chris Coleman. Besides them, the band is formed by Swedish trumpeter Christopher Strandh and Slovak bass guitar player Tomáš Ulahel. The band's music is as colourful as its motley ethnic composition.  more

On the last day of May, the Dominikánské Square in Brno came to life with music, singing and dancing. At half past two in the afternoon, the programme of the nationwide happening of primary artistic schools ZUŠ started under the patronage of the Magdalena Kožená Endowment Fund by announcing the results of the "TO JE talent"competition. The participants did not only come to pick up with prizes. Several of the award-winning singers and musicians proved this. For example, Lucie Sedláčková with the song by Ewa Farná Měls mě vůbec rád [Did You Love Me At All?] attracted an ever growing crowd of listeners, while singer and pianist Veronika Vávrová did the same with the ballad Million Reasons by Lady Gaga.  more

The programme of this year's Concentus Moraviae festival presents an unprecedented cross-section of more than twenty Czech and foreign string quartets. The exceptional violinist, composer, professor of the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, UK, and the long-time first violinist of the Škampa Quartet, Pavel Fischer, was asked by publicist Lukáš Pavlica to give an interview.  more
