Leoš Janáček and Bohuslav Martinů as seen by Aleksandar Marković, chief conductor of the Brno Philharmonic


The Brno Philharmonic’s concert with a programme including complete performances of Janáček’s Lachinan Dances and Martinů’s cantata Kytice (Bouquet of Flowers) served as a good occasion for us to talk with the orchestra’s chief conductor, Alexandar Marković and to ask him to discuss his personal relationship to both of these classic composers of Czech music.
