Homage à Bohdan Warchal
The labyrinths of searching in the music production of the 20th century was considerably endowed by composers from the Latin American region. The Argentinian Astor Piazzolla and his flaming „tango epos“ became literally cultish, as evidenced by the arrangement of the Russian Leonid Desyatnikov. Also Ladislav Kupkovič and his retrospective nostalgic Souvenir for violin and orchestra can put a smile on your face. An expression of the juvenile commitment and the willingness to create is also the Simple Symphony by the Briton Benjamin Britten; after this nonchalant entree followed thrilling life dramas. Béla Bartók searched for a shelter from the war cataclysms in the plein-air, where he walked out to collect original songs and dances. The collection of Romanian Dances is one of Bartók’s most-loved pieces.
