Leoš Janáček in Texas, 2013.

If you live in North Texas, you are in for a treat. The University of North Texas College of Music in Denton is back with it's annual celebration of great Czech composers.

It is all about Leoš Janáček, this year. It will be a world stage performance for a bargain price. Let your Czech friends know, bring your children and let them experience the beauty of Janáček's music. Leoš Janáček (1854-1928), together with Bedřich Smetana and Antonín Dvořák, is recognized among the most important composers of the Czech nation.

An exerpt  from the UNT's website:

"Although perhaps not as well known to American audiences as Smetana and Dvořák, Janáček is undoubtedly the most "Czech" of the three.  Although all used musical ideas that referenced their country in a nationalist movement, it was Janáček who collected and preserved Moravian folk songs and incorporated them in his classical compositions through his use of modality, pentatonic scales, and modeling vocal parts on the inflections of the Czech language and, in particular, the "Moravian" dialect."

Your children will be proud to see that people from our small country had an impact on the world.

In addition to participating in the academic conference on Saturday, 9 February, academics from two continents will be on the UNT campus for the week of the festival to offer pre-concert lectures, seminars, and discussion forums. See the Full Schedule of Events.

ČESKY

 

Pokud žijete v severním Texasu, tak budete mít tento týden jedinečnou příležitost zajít si na koncert věnovaný českému hudebnímu skladateli, Leoši Janáčkovi. Hudební fakulta University of North Texas v Dentonu pořádá další výroční oslavu velkých českých hudebních skladatelů. Leoš Janáček (1854-1928), společně s Bedřichem Smetanou a Antonínem Dvořákem, je jedním z nejdůležitějších hudebních skladatelů českého národa.

Výňatek z UNT's webových stránek:

" Přesto, že není americkému publiku znám tak dobře jako například Smetana nebo Dvořák, Janáček je bezesporu tím nejvíce "českým" ze zmíněných tří skladatelů. Ač všichni tři využívali hudebních motivů jenž odkazovaly na rodnou zemi během důležitého hnutí - Narodního obrození , byl to právě Janáček, který sebral a zachoval Moravské lidové písně a také je začlenil do svých kompozicí. Činil tak využíváním modality, pentatonických stupnic a formováním vokálních partů na základě přízvuku v českém jazyce a hlavně v moravském dialektu."

Bude to koncert světové třídy, za přístupnou cenu. Dejte vědět všem českým známým a vezměte vaše děti, aby zažily krásu Janáčkovy hudby na vlastní kůži. Určitě budou zase o něco více pyšnější na to, že lidé z naší malé země mají vliv na celý svět.
