Description

ABOUT THE CONCERT

The programme for the Velvet Revolution Concerts includes 20th century works composed under difficult circumstances or with a troubled fate. Jakub Hrůša put together an original “Slavonic” programme of early works by Sergei Rachmaninoff, Leoš Janáček and Witold Lutosławski (Poland), who faced censorship because of artistic and civic ideals.
