Marek Eben in the Labyrinth of the World
Michaela Káčerková – organ
Marek Eben – recitation
Programme: Petr Eben, John Amos Comenius: Labyrinth of the World and Paradise of the Heart
Marking the 90th anniversary of the birth of the important composer Petr Eben (1929–2007), the concert presents the feature piece Labyrinth of the World and Paradise of the Heart for an organist and a reciter. The latter role is assumed by Marek Eben, the famous actor and host and the composer’s son at the same time. He will guide us through the fourteen stations of the work as a pilgrim finding no joy in the labyrinth of the world and turning to God in his heart to make himself a better person and the world a better place.
