Thursday, 11 November 2010 - 7:00 PM
Skladatela Jozef Podprockého netreba košickému publiku zvlášt predstavovat. „Quasi a Fantasia“, ktorá na koncerte zaznie v premiére, je podla slov samotného skladatela „sondou do psychiky dnešného cloveka s tendenciou odkryt, alebo aspon poodhalit dobre utajené stavy, ci obrazy jeho vnútra.“ Tvorba Jozefa Kolkovica – slovenského emigranta žijúcecho v USA – si teší coraz väcšej pozornosti. Koncert pre akordeón a orchester napísal na podnet Petra Katinu, ktorý koncert uvedie v svetovej premiére. Skladatel a hudobný filozof Roman Berger vyslovil bezprostredne po vypocutí premiéry Godárovho Dariacanginho sadu tézu, že v slovenskej hudbe sa týmto zacala nová kapitola (R. Berger: „Poznámky ku skladbe V. Godára Dariacangin sad - mýtus“. In: Hudobný život 1989/2, s. 4-8). Dielo získalo velký ohlas, Cenu ceskoslovenskej hudobnej kritiky a napriek tomu, že dodes nebolo vydané, neupadlo do zabudnutia, ale slovenské orchestre sa k nemu pre jeho nesporné kvality radi vracajú. K tomuto ambicióznemu koncertu prizvala ŠfK špickových interprétov.
