Simon Rattle finds a new US outletmain
The enterprising conductor and his wife Magdalena Kožená will broadcast a live concert from Brno in the Czech Republic this Thursday.
Kino Scala, Aerofilms and the US company PARMA Recordings will broadcast the recital live from 9pm in the courtyard of the Governor’s Palace.
Kozena says: ‘The atmosphere of a home concert in the unique environment of Villa Tugendhat, which is also taking place in my hometown, charges the whole performance with strong emotions. I included in the program songs that accompanied me while studying at the conservatory, and many of them include folk melodies or lyrics. I have the most intimate relationship with them, because they not only reflect the enormous wealth of folk creativity of our region, of which I am rightly proud, but they also remind me of the happy moments of my childhood and youth.’
