Announcement of the first concerts of the spring season 2021

25. 2. 2021
Due to the covid pandemic, we cannot meet in person at the concert on March 13 in the Prague prayer room of the Czech Brethren Evangelical Church in Vinohrady.

However, we are preparing a recording of the concert for you, which we will publish on March 25 from 20:00 on our youtube channel. The compositions by Gideon Klein, Johann Sebastian Bach and Olivier Messiaen will be performed by leading Czech musicians - violinist Jan Mráček, clarinetist Irvin Venyš, pianist Martin Kasík and cellist Jiří Bárta.

It is Klein, whose Lullaby will be able to be heard by the audience of the concert, who belongs to the circle of so-called Terezín authors. He was born in 1919 in Přerov, worked as a pianist and accompanist, in November 1941 he got to Terezín, where he organized a musical life and at the same time worked. He was deported to Auschwitz in October 1944, and died in early 1945. You can watch the documentary for more information.
The history of the Messiaen Quartet For the End of Time is also worth a closer look. It was first played on 15 December in 1941 in the concentration camp in Görlitz by prisoners. Hundreds of fellow prisoners took part in the concert, and a few months later Messiaen was released and lived to be 83 years old. This quartet is one of the most important works of this French composer and lover of bird songs.

Jazz fans can then look forward to April. On April 25, 2021, from 20:00, a live broadcast of the second festival concert from the breath taking newly reconstructed Spanish Synagogue in Prague will take place. Follow us on our Facebook account or youtube. The jazz evening will feature award-winning guitarist David Dorůžka, flutist Robert Fischmann and drummer Martin Novák with a program of his own compositions and works by world-famous musicians such as John Zorn, Chava Alberstein and Kurt Weill.
