P. Eben / J. A. Comenius: Labyrinth of the World and Paradise of the Heart
Marking the 350th anniversary of the death of John Amos Comenius, the concert presents the feature piece Labyrinth of the World and Paradise of the Heart for an organist and a reciter. The latter role is assumed by the famous actor and host Marek Eben. He will guide us through the fourteen stations of the work as a pilgrim finding no joy in the labyrinth of the world and turning to God in his heart to make himself a better person and the world a better place. The challenging organ part composed by the prominent Czech composer, pianist and organist Petr Eben will be performed by Michaela Káčerková.
