"Czech music has been a part of my life since childhood. Not only classical, but even folk. It is, in fact, the melodic beauty and the harmonic and rhythmic richness of folk music, a genre that has become entwined with my heart, which helps me understand the language of our most renown composers who came out of this rich cultural heritage."
