    Iva Bittova sings Janácek; June 29th - July 5th

    Czech composer Leoš Janácek was inspired by Moravian and other Slavic folk music. This week we honour his birthdate by featuring an album in which Czech singer Iva Bittova and the Skampa Quartet present a personal interpretation of Janacek’s collection of Moravian Folk Poetry in Songs. Masterful accompaniment to Bittova’s stunning vocals every night this week.
