At the time of the pandemic, clarinettist and singer Vojta Nýdl recorded a remarkable album with Beata Hlavenková. Full of poetry, full of beauty. The recording celebrates life and its fragility in detail. It is called Dítě větru (“Child of the Wind”), inspired by the personal story of the very premature and dramatic birth of Nýdl’s second daughter Johanka and is dedicated to all prematurely born children. The guests of the evening will be special indeed: double bassist Klára Pudláková and percussionist Dano Šoltis.
Vojta Nýdl, clarinettist, singer, composer and lyricist, studied clarinet at Pardubice Conservatory, at Academy of Performing Arts in Prague and in Paris at Conservatoire National Supérieure.
