about this recording:
Familiar from childhood with the folk music of his Bohemian homeland, but also influenced by the practice of Gregorian chant, Franišek Fiala combines ancient styles with the tradition of the European Modern in his music. This results in an entirely personal musical language that gives rise to surprises in chamber music works and to edifying moments in his sacred works, yet always affirming the great tradition of the musical heritage. In this he resembles other contemporary composers such as Arvo Pärt and Krystof Penderetzki.
