The great tradition of the rhapsody

Originally a poem performed by “rhapsodes”, minstrels in ancient Greece, the rhapsody has over the centuries become an integral part of Bohemian folk music and has increasingly informed the work of many classical music composers, including Dvořák, Brahms, Smetana and Liszt. On 1 August the Bratislava-based Janoska Ensemble will take the Klosters Music audience on a journey through the great tradition of the rhapsody past and present, right up to the compositions of František Janoska himself. To get an initial impression of fascinating technical virtuosity and experience the ensemble’s joy of playing, go to the following link.
