New CD: Excursion to Jan Novák’s wonderful musical landscape
The music of Jan Novák (1921–1984) is exceptional and remarkable in itself. However, the new Supraphon recording puts a certain stamp of authenticity on it. Besides pianist Karel Košárek, the solo parts of the three concertante pieces were played by both of the composer’s daughters: “This was my very first encounter with Dora and Clara Novák. Their musical vitality and their sense of their father’s music were great inspiration and support for me. In combination with pianist Karel Košárek’s professionalism it was a unique experience,” says Tomáš about recording Jan Novák’s concertos breathing the atmosphere of a family gathering across time. He recorded the album with the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra and it is released these days by Supraphon.
