J. Novak: Testamentum, Choral Works
Martinu Voices; Vasilek; Novakova; Voboril; Hernych; Javurkova; Vasina
Composed by: Novak, Jan
Jan Novák’s oeuvre has not received the attention it undoubtedly deserves. His music is noted for its lightness, elegance, humor and slight provocation, and, in addition to Martinů and jazz, was inspired by Latin, which he perfectly mastered and applied (almost exclusively) in his works. The young Martinů Voices ensemble presents Jan Novák’s choral pieces, with two of them released on CD for the very first time. A special guest on the album is the composer’s daughter, flautist Clara Nováková.
