His ability to play an extremely fast sequence of tones, yet also soft and sophisticated sounds makes him one of Czech Republic‘s most flexible trumpetists. The vast number of orchestras in which he performed, his wide spectrum of musical genres and the amount of extraordinary records he has made is truly honourable. Jan Burian is not only an exceptional musician, but most importantly, our dear friend and trusted mentor. He listens, helps and supports all those around him. That is why in honour of his 80th birthday, the orchestra is arranging a concert dedicated to him.
In this concerts his favourite musical pieces will be presented by several of his colleagues, friends and students. Performing will be a group of elite trumpetists, namely Vratislav Bartoš, Jan Fišer, Jan Hasenöhrl, Jiří Houdek, Jan Hykrda, Lukáš Koudelka, Roman Bobík Kubát, Vladimír Rejlek or Marek Vajo, and the legendary organ player Aleš Bárta. The program will also include renowned composers such as Giuseppe Torelli, Vincenzo Bellini, Ennio Morricone and Jeremiah Clarke.
