During the WWII, Jarmila Novotná accompanied on a piano by Jan Masaryk, sang a set of folk songs that were broadcasted by radio
in Czechoslovakia. As an analogy
to this patriotism act of Jarmila Novotná, we are preparing a song recital of Martina Janková consisting
of Janáček´s folk songs through which she will pay a tribute to her home country. The presence and support of this famous international soprano for our festival are one of the most important steps in 2018. The gala concert will take place on September 9, 2018, in Čechovna Hall located in the Chateau Liteň area. The event will be done in the cooperation with
a pianist Ivo Kahánek and Ensemble FLAIR and will be a symbolic celebration
of the 90th death anniversary of Leoš Janáček.
At the same time it will be the top of this year’s Jarmila Novotná Festival.
Tickets in two categories, for CZK 1,500 and CZK 1,000, can be booked and purchased by email at tickets [at] zamekliten [dot] cz or via phone 724 880 826. The concert starts at 7.30 pm. Part of the tickets is a glass of wine in the Chateau park. The number of tickets is limited, so we recommend early reservation!
