In the 20th century, composers realised that folk music could play an important role in their search for new compositional solutions. To begin with, they were driven to folk tradition by the Romantic need to establish a characteristic national artistic style rooted in the nation’s essence. The two most important representatives of this period in Czech music were Leoš Janáček and Bohuslav Martinů, both of whom frequently resorted to folk motifs. Friday’s recital in Križevniška Church will explore the folk-inspired songs of these two interesting and, until recently, somewhat overlooked composers. They will be sung by the soprano Martina Janková, who is an established interpreter of operas by Mozart and her performances of works by Baroque composers. She has collaborated fruitfully for many years with the conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt, who has engaged her for several major operas and oratorios. Christoph Berner, whose broad stylistic range and musical versatility have often been praised by critics, will provide the piano miniatures during the solos, as well as the piano accompaniment to the soprano. Of particular note is his collaboration with the tenor Werner Güra, with whom he has released numerous award-winning recordings on the Harmonia Mundi label.
