Prague Shakuhachi Festival 2010
October 25, 2010
I returned to the Prague Shakuhachi Festival after a break of a few years. It was great to see a much expanded programme and many familiar faces. I was honoured to play in a performance of Vlatislav Matousek’s ‘Koan’ with Jean-Francois Lagrost and Ensemble 108 Hertz.
I was also fortunate to visit the UNESCO town of Český Krumlov.
I visited the Moravian town of Polička where the composer Bohuslav Martinů was born. Beyond the old town walls is the tower where he was born and raised.
