5-3-14. Czech Chamber Music Society. Ceska Filharmonie. Rudolfinum / Suk Hall. 2014 is Czech Music Year. Being a Dvorak Society Member. Was Looking Forward to Attending this Concert, For Some Time. The Suk Hall is Very Beautiful. The Early Start Time for 5 -30 PM. Ideal For Me in Praha. Time Afterwards for a Fuller Evening. Concert Started with Second Place Cellist Eduard Sistek. Born 1992 in Praha. Accompany by Miroslav Sekera ( Piano ). Opening with Martinu Sonata No 3. Wrote in France ( 1952 ). Before Returning to New York. Very Czech. Really Liked the Two Final Items of His Musical Programme. Gyorgy Ligeti. Sonata for Solo Cello. Ligeti From Hungarian Jewish Family. Who Lived in Transylvania, Romania. Influenced by Bartok. Suffered Oppression From Nazi & Communism. Piece Not Played to 1956. Year I Was Born !. Then Nikolaj Kapustin. Burlesque OP 97. Jazz Inspired from the Ukrainian. Sistek Studied at the Praha Academy of Performing Arts. From 2011 a Member of the Czech Philharmonic. Loved His Bold Adventurous Musical Programme. Most Of the Pieces I Have Never Heard Before. After a Short Interval. First Prize Cellist Robert Kruzik. Takes To the Stage. With Vaclav Macha on Piano. Robert Born in 1990 ( Brno ). From 2006. Has Preformed with the Matys Quartet. Kruzik is Also a Good Conductor. Particular Interest to Me. He Has Worked with Teplice North Bohemia Philharmonic & The Pavel Haas Chamber Orchestra. Second Half Starts with A. Dvorak. Silent Woods OP 68. Work was Preformed in the CZ. Before Leaving for the USA. Continues with Fairy Tale by Leos Janacek. Concert Finish,s with Martinu Sonata NO 2. Based on Czech Folk Songs.
