The combination of lively music by authors from Slovakia and equally mesmeric work of Leoš Janáček in the Liechtenstein Castle Wilfersdorf (Austria).
The Czech violinist Markéta Janoušková in cooperation with Jiří Janoušek Dulcimer Music presents the original FolkloreClassic concert project – the boundary of classical and folk music.
The project combines two genres that Markéta Janoušková deals with as a violinist: folk music and works for violin by great composers who were deeply influenced by this music. The first part of the program presents Czech and Slovak authors such as S. Bodová and G. Hrisko, the second part shows the folklore aspects of the works of the great composer. In addition to the violin solos of Markéta Janoušková, other soloists of Jiří Janoušek Dulcimer Music and Janoušková‘s female choir will also perform.
Since its first introduction, FolkloreClassic has been regularly performing not only at the Czech festivals of classical music, but also at festivals in Belgium, Germany and Slovakia. In September 2019 the single-based CD Folklorique was released on Supraphone‘s online platform.
For her artistic versatility, Markéta Janoušková is a sought-after soloist and chamber musician, artistic leader and guest teacher at master classes. Her attitude is appreciated not only for raw interpretation and technical virtuosity, but also for intelligent and overlapping dramaturgy. Thanks to her family roots, Markéta Janoušková is greatly inspired by folk music, which she promotes in the Czech Republic and abroad. She has released several CDs, most recently a critically acclaimed CD of Goldberg Variations for the Maltese Philharmonic and collaboration on CD of Jiří Teml’s chamber works for Czech Radio.
