Martin Myšička recitation
By the bench there stood an infant, screaming, screaming, loud and wild. Glow, moon, glow, that my thread may sew. You will be able to recall these famous verses by Karel Jaromír Erben at the concert of Robert Jindra, principal guest conductor of the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra. In the first half of the program, he will present two works by Czech authors inspired by ballads from Erben’s collection A Bouquet of Czech Folktales. The evening will open with The Noonday Witch, the second of the programmatic symphonic poems from the beginning Antonín Dvořák’s peak creative period. It will be followed by the melodrama The Water Goblin for reciter and orchestra, in which the famous poem is accompanied by music by Zdeněk Fibich.
