A concert by four of the Czech Republic’s leading female chamber musicians presents classical and contemporary pieces that reflect the life and work of the Austrian Jewish violinist Alma Rosé (1906–1944).
Silvie Hessová, Martina Bačová, Věra Binarová and Hana Baboráková Shabuová are among the leading Czech female chamber musicians. With their joint project, Alma Ansámbl, they have performed to audiences in the Czech Republic and around the world. The ensemble’s main goal is to preserve the artistic individuality of the soloists while developing their music in combination with visual art, dance and theatre. The founding of Alma Ensemble was inspired by the life and work of the prominent musician and violinist Alma Rosé (1906–1944), whose artistic education, ambition, love of music and, above all, courage remain a great inspiration to the ensemble.
