| Czech composers first appear in musical history during the classical era, when Vorisek, Stamitz, |
Myslivecek travelled to central, western and southern Europe in the service of princes.
Czech national music developed its identity later, growing out of the traditions of German Romanticism
and represented above all by Smetana and Dvorak.
At the turn of the century, the dominant figure was Janacek, who grew up surrounded by Maravian folk
music. And more recently still, Bohuslav Martinu drew his inspiration from the French avant-garde in the 1920s, blending it into his own later humanistic style.
In the 1st part, Markus Nyikos and Jaroslav Smykal opens with the piece of Mendelssohn,
the representative musician of Leipzig. And this duo will play the Bohemian works.
In the 2nd part, the same East-European composer Shostakovich's piano trio will be played.
