According to Jakub Hrůša, “the composers Jaroslav Krček, Bohuslav Martinů, and Leoš Janáček have something in common. Above all, their music is communicatory in the best sense of the word. In just a few bars, each creates a bond with the listener and maintains it long after the last notes die away. All three owe their deserved success in part to their firm grounding in the wonderful sources of folk tradition, which lends credibility to their engaging yet simple utterances. Another thing all three composers have in common for me personally is that I already liked their music when I was a child.”
These concerts are supported financially by the Bohuslav Martinů Foundation.
