We are pleased to present the second performance in our 10th anniversary concert series, On An Overgrown Path, taking place on Friday, October 11 at 7:30 pm in Kamloops United Church.
This concert features KSO principal cellist Martin Krátký with his mother Alena Krátká, performing (mostly) Czech works for cello and piano. From the intimacy of Dvořák’s character-piece “Silent Woods”, Janáček’s alternately dreamy and dramatic “Fairy Tale”, and Martinů’s gripping 2nd Sonata, this music spans a huge expressive gamut.
Already performing this program in the Vernon Proms festival to huge acclaim, Martin and Alena offer virtuosic, gorgeous interpretations of these works. Some of this music was featured in the 1988 film, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, providing a haunting, unforgettable backdrop to the movie.
Tickets for the performance are $25, $20 Youth (under 19) and CMK members, FREE for children under 12, and are available in advance from Eventbrite, or at the door.
