May 24, 2012: a presentation by CD Maratka/ chamber music by the Calliopée Ensemble and Sandrine Charton, harp solo, performed in Paris at the Czech Cultural Center.
Two works are recorded on this CD – Praharphona Sextet and Hypnozy
Commentary by the lead composer of the Praharphona Sextet:
“The work takes its inspiration from the city of Prague. Framed by eight movements, several sequences reflect diverse phenomena, situations, images and allusions with no logical narrative, but always closely bound to its place. They grow out of simple dedications.”
The title of the work is formed from the words, harp, the chosen solo instrument and Prague, the composer’s beloved birthplace and his source of inspiration.
