A complex work by Pavel Haas, one of the representatives of the "Terezín authors" written in Terezín a year before the author's death, in confrontation with the most famous work of Astor Piazzolla, king of Argentine tango in 2022, a concert by three continents will be performed, featuring an Argentine author, a Czech author, a Czech performer and a Japanese conductor.
Chuhei Iwasaki is a Japanese conductor living in Prague. In addition to his career as a conductor, he has been successfully conducting the string orchestra of the Prague Conservatory. A great emphasis based on this concert is the educativity stemming from the contact of the Terezín author Pavel Haas with the students of the Prague Conservatory. They will pass on the closest contact with the author through his musical and life legacy.
