Henry Purcell, Aaron Copland, Chet Baker, Bobby Shew, Ennio Morricone, Vladimir Cosma
During this era, we have had the opportunity to meet a great number of Czech and international performers, and our cooperations have subsequently turned into lifelong friendships. We value these friendships immensely. This is why we have decided to create a concert dedicated to these relationships, entitled the Jan Hasenöhrl & Lots of Friends concert for our supporters. Our audience members will be able to listen to a selection of great music in the Smetana Hall of the Municipal House, and feel the magical effects of this music, which really brings people together.
In the words of host Jan Hasenöhrl: “I am very much looking forward to this concert, because, as the name suggests, I will see a lot of my old friends on stage. In forty-five years of working in the industry, there have been quite a few of them, especially during the three decades of the CNSO's existence. The concert is a look back over the years and the people I was lucky enough to meet and play with. You will have the chance to enjoy baroque and classical music, which will be followed by the captivating music of Ennio Morricone and Vladimir Cosma. Additionally, Lalo Schifrin, jazzman and author of the music for the film Mission Impossible, will seamlessly transport us to the landscape of jazz. Finally, you will be witness to the compositions of Bobby Shew and Vince Mendoza, which remind me of unforgettable projects I collaborated on.”
