We would be delighted if you joined us the players, singers and composers - for a fascinating trip into the world of vocal and instrumental sound and their relationship, and ending with a glass of wine and conversation.

Directed by Romanian-born Radu Mihăileanu, it won Most Popular International Film at the 2005 Vancouver International Film Festival and eight other international awards. The piece is written for Piano Duet and Strings and will be performed by Rynkova and myself at the piano (25th)

Invitation to Composers is supported by the European Cultural Fund and has enriched Europe's cultural heritage with 40 valuable works inspired by music, literature, visual arts, history and nature. It is building bridges between great traditions of music of the past and contemporary thought, without the use of electronics and non-musical experiments. The three explore together the roots of inspiration and the journey to the final product and its execution. The performers (during workshops) and the audience (during open workshops and concerts) have the privilege of better understanding the message through a direct dialogue with the composer.
