A world tour for the Swiss National Day
Klosters Music celebrates Swiss National Day together with the “Janoska Ensemble” with a trip around the world. This is however without leaving our homeland in the true sense of the word. Because “musically, we associate the term ‘homeland’ above all with folk music: by this we mean those melodies that we heard in childhood, that our mother sang to us, that we picked up somewhere and hummed along to; we still have all these songs, tunes and melodies in our heads and pass them on – consciously and also unconsciously – to our own children today,” says František Janoska. So let’s head off to distant homelands and listen to the memories the “Janoskas” share with us Antonin Dvořák’s “Songs My Mother Taught Me”, composed in 1880 for vocal and piano, and Roman Janoska’s own composition “Hello Prince!”. Astor Piazzolla’s “Oblivion” (newly in place of Adiós Nonino” in the programme), composed in 1982 as film music track for the Italian drama Henry IV, takes us as far as Argentina. The “Bohemian Rhapsody”, with which the front man of the pop group “Queen” made history in 1975, also went around the world. Further information about the concert can be found here.
Due to a broken finger Ondrej Janoska (violin) unfortunately cannot participate in the concert. Nevertheless, the Janoska Ensemble will still perform. Moreover, we are pleased to welcome another member of the Janoska family: Arpád Janoska (singer) will perform as a surprise guest on Piazzolla’s Tango. The program can be kept for the most part. We are convinced that the Janoska Ensemble will make the concert an event thanks to their great art of improvisation And we at this point wish Ondrej Janoska a speedy recovery!
