Wednesday 16 September 2020 from 19.30

The 9th edition of the Music Day concerts performed by the Brno Contemporary Orchestra will present the audience with a brand new programme, titled “Money”. Money is what unites and divides us, it is our main tool of exchange. It sounds scary, but thanks to money we can easily exchange different goods with each other, pay for both services and useless things, and it seems that we all want it that way. In addition, money generates different values, but most often it is enough when they reproduce themselves. We all somehow suspect that money spoils the character and that you can't buy happiness for money, but still, without money, even that possible happiness is poor.

The concert in the luxurious and exclusive main living space in the Tugendhat Villa will offer you various views on the value, worth, meaning and nonsense of money. The whole concept of the evening is based on the texts of the young poet Pavel Zajíc, who dedicated his collection of poetry to the corporate culture of money. The lyrics, in the author's interpretation, will be heard in confrontation with the rich music of engaged resistance composers.
