We are a group of international musicians based in the Czech Republic and in Holland, who share a common love of both classical and improvisatory traditions. In October 2013, we went into a studio deep in the beautiful Dutch countryside and recorded our debut album: “A Golden Age” .
The music we investigated while searching for material changed our view of modern society. We realized that younger generations have, unfortunately, lost touch with the heritage of great nations such as Germany, France, Italy and Russia. Year by year, fewer and fewer people remember the names of cultural heroes of these countries and that golden age.
Since we come from diverse countries—Russia, Ukraine, Holland, South Korea, Czech and Slovak Republic—we are even more aware of the personal cultural background that each of us carries around in him. In the time we shared together recording the album, we talked about what was important to us in music and this conversation carried over instrumentally into the studio, too.
And why should that interest you as a listener? Music makes us breathe, gives us a source of inspiration and educates us. Art—and music in particular, we feel—is stronger than anything else, crossing boundaries of time and space. In short, music unites us. We hope you will feel this spirit coming through as you listen and share this journey with us.
