A part of the concert called “garden” held by the Konvergence composers’ association on October 31 at the already traditional venue of the church of st. Lawrence in the Lesser Town, Prague, was a world premiere of Landscape: HypnoticPulsation, a piece by composer one of Konvergence’s co-founders Tomáš Pálka.
It was performed by Kalabis Quintet, a young successful ensemble composed of both current and former female students of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. The audience also had a chance to hear C’est un jardin secret, ma soeur (T. Murail), Music for a Deceased Friend (P. Vasks), 6 Bagatelles (G. Ligeti), Marian Flowers I-V (P. Zemek Novák) and à W. (O. Štochl).
