prepared and performed by

Jitka Baštová – accordion

Jindřich Macek - lute

At first sight the programme is unique. It wants to acquaint the audience with compositions arranged for our unusual duo - a unique combination of the sound of an aerophone (where sound is produced by vibrations in a body of air) and a historical instrument, thus bringing new thoughts and colourful ideas. The works are chosen to emphasize the strengths of both instruments, their subtlety, variety and ability to evoke a certain feeling, to render onomatopoeia. Suitably selected accordion and lute solos also introduce both instruments in various styles and genres.

In the programme you can hear musical compositions by H. Newsidler, J. Dowland, D. G. Speer, D. Scarlatti,
C. Debussy, J. Ibert, E. Werner, G. Klucevsek and R. Turovsky.

Concert halls, galleries, chapels, churches, castles and outdoor atria are suitable settings for the realization of this concert programme.
