Third annual concert of the male choir Láska opravdivá
The male choir Láska opravdivá (True Love) invites to their third annual concert. The programme includes works by Czech and Russian composers, among others by S. V. Rachmaninov, B. Smetana and L. Janáček.
The male singing chorus Láska opravdivá (True Love with dialectic colouring) was founded by Jaroslav Černocký and Jan Špaček in 2009 with the intention to revive the once rich and now nearly withdrawn tradition of interpretation of compositions for male choir. The choral body is based at the Institute of Musicology of the city of Brno’s Masaryk University and its members are students of several Brno universities. At present there are about thirty permanent members. The repertoire specializes in orthodox sacred music, e.g. traditional melodies from Subcarpathian Ruthenia, and in Czech choral music of the 19th and 20ieth centuries, especially Leoš Janáček. Láska opravdivá is the title of one of Janáček’s male choruses on folk texts; as a name for a choral body, it should symbolize its repertoire’s unity of sacred music and folk song.
