Many composers constantly surprise us with their works. Many of them are familiar to us, but there are certainly forgotten gems waiting to be discovered. The songs of this year’s jubilarians Igor Stravinsky (140th anniversary of his birth), Arthur Honegger (130th anniversary of his birth), Darius Milhaud (130th anniversary of his birth) or Zoltán Kodály (140th anniversary of his birth) are undoubtedly such pearls, even though they will probably surprise you in connection with their names.
The protagonists of this concert, mezzo-soprano Jana Hrochová and young baritone Robin Červinek, are among the most sought-after song performers, which certainly promises an unforgettable experience. They will be joined by other instrumentalists in the songs of Igor Stravinsky. The piano parts will be performed by the award-winning pianist Bohumír Stehlík.
