Talks: violin concerto (2022)


Written for Daniel Matejča and commissioned by Jan Prchal. Talks, a concerto for violin and string orchestra, captures the societal essence of conversation. The dichotomy between soloist and ensemble mirrors various types of discourse. Through deep listening, unity is found, echoing the imperative for dialogue within contemporary society. Let the youth speak; listen to them, they will listen to you.

Special thanks to the fantastic players of the Prague Conservatoire Chamber Orchestra.
