Those tiny musical little poems created only for entertainment at first or to make a man reflect, as well as to introduce into dreaming, to bring sadness or pure joy. They have survived and withstood the severe sieve test of mercilessly measured time and from saloons with a subtle figure behind the piano and his characteristic dioptric glasses up to the rigorous face of a man in endless neurotic movement, or that of the reflective youngster with an old-man beard, have spread out to the world and gradually flooded almost all of the known places. They stand for the hope of preserving the memory of unique life moments of their actors.

Composers and poets have entwined in a solid partnership which finally, has grown into a firm relation, enriching themselves with fruits of spirit.

The Slovak area has not been excluded, either – it has been domesticated in daily routines of its musicians and poets. A Song – as a unique space for expression of the most intimate ideas – became a natural part of their work and artistic messages.

The two cycles by Eugen Suchoň are the opposite counterparts of his artistic quest and they confirm the Composer’s artistry and originality of music language.They are introduced in transcriptions by a Slovak composer Peter Zagar in an ideal combination of solo voice accompanied by string orchestra. The Aria by Tadeáš Salva had been almost a lost piece, finding its revival now in this recording – and what a piece of work! The Author had a long time inclination for the form of ballad and his Aria has been created as the most intense impact of its kind. Pavol Krška, in his nowadays already cult prayer – Otče náš (The Lord’s Prayer), makes the listener’s inner self vibrate by vigorous and deep sound frequencies.

The Aztec Songs II by Ilja Zeljenka are a quintessence of his passion for composition games, in which each of the further bar grows up from the preceding one as the only logic result of eternal inspirational impulse chains. The Composer had Gustáv Beláček’s artistry in the heart of his mind when writing, since this cycle was dedicated to him.

And finally, Johannes Brahms and his last finished piece of work – the one in which he gives a symbolic farewell to life and indirectly also to the whole, so rich, 19th century; the time when we had perhaps heard of that tiny musical little poem for the first time, with the modest short-sighted Viennese boy crouched behind the Hammerklavier. Gerhard Auer transcribed the cycle for chamber orchestra and gifted them a softer sound of strings with flute.

Let the fragile beauty of these songs delight you, with Gustáv Beláček’s mastery and enter the fantastic worlds of musical genius ideas together with him, as our experienced guide, protector and their interpreter. The Ensemble Opera Diversa, the Mucha Quartet with Veronika Vitázková and František Výrostko Jr., Marek Paľa and finally Marian Lejava join him to provide their company.
