JANA VONASKOVA - NOVAKOVA. & MARTIN KASIK.

6-5-18. The Acclaimed Prazak String Quartet. Played in London. Then Here in Leamington. Friday Evening, again Yesterday Lunch Time. Due to Time Constraints. Was Unable to Attend.

Not To Worry. The Leader of The Prazak String Quartet. Jana Vonaskova - Novakova Plays This Lunch Times Concert. With the Pianist Martin Kasik.

Jana had a Scholarship with the Royal College of Music.

Concert begins with Smetana,s " From My Homeland ". Dedicated to His Patron. Prince Alexander Thurn - Taxis. Must Have Liked it. In Return The Prince Bestowed Smetana with a Ivory Snuffbox !. Something Not to be Sneezed At !.

Smetana of Course is Credited of Been a True Czech Nationalist. While in Weimar on the Invitation from Lizt. He Heard in Conversation with Austrian Conductor Johann Von Herbeck. That The Conductor, Thought That the Czech,s were Incapable of Creating Music of their Own !!!. Smetana Thought, Ano, Right !!!. Surprised He Did Not Punch Him !!!.

Smetana had a Sad End to his Life. Suffered with Syphilis. Went Deaf. Imagine a Composer going Deaf !. Must have Been Heart Breaking. Ending up in a Lunatic Asylum.

Concert Continues with the Fine Erwin Schulhoff. Suite for Violin & Piano OP 1. My first listen to this Composers Music.

Now of Course We are Cursed with the Blight of New Technology. Mobile Phones have Excellent Camera,s . This Women thought it was Her Right. Two Rows from the Front to Take Photos of the Musicians !. Man behind, Shook His Head, well He Might !. Blow Me Later. This Same Women Changed Places with Her Husband. To Get a Better Vantage Point. Taking More Photos. Something I Enjoyed in Nottingham. Watching the Czech Philharmonic. Phones were Policed with Vigorous Aplomb.

The Very Good Concert finish,s with a Muzurek OP 49 By Dvorak. Then the Violin Solo from " Raduz & Mahulena ". OP 13. By Josef Suk.

Go Out in to the Blazing Sun. To a Sandwich. Next Door. Followed by a Wonderful Mr Whippy Ice Cream Cone !. Purchased from a Van, Next to Jephson Gardens. On Newbold Terrace.
