Petr Eben: Elce pelce kotrmelce
The concert is intended for younger children audiences as well as adult listeners. The composer, organist and pianist Petr Eben (1929–2007) is known primarily as a composer of sacred music, but he also dedicated an equally important part of his work to children. Probably the best known among these works is the song cycle Elce pelce kotrmelce on lyrics by Václav Fišer. The cycle was created in the difficult years 1969–70 and later the songs were supplemented by a fairytale by the composer’s son Marek Eben.
