A little train ride with Dvořák

What is the difference between a violin, a viola, and a cello? What is a composer? Is it someone who builds things? Or puts together a puzzle? And what can you see from the window of a train when the music of Antonín Dvořák is playing?

On our way to visit Dvořák in America, we will find ourselves in the steppes of Armenia, where we can experience the Saber Dance! We also get to hear what Dvořák’s Humoresque sounds like if you take it apart and put it back together. The same will be done with part of Dvořák’s famed American Quartet.

The programme features the Norbert Quartet and the actresses Diana ČičmanováJana Radojčičová or Jana Franková.
