This concert program pays respect to women. Every musical piece of the program is linked to women. The main motive of the whole project is the celebration of a woman in all her roles - a woman as a mother, a woman as a muse, a mistress, a little girl, a wise old granny ...
The compositions represent a broad emotional range; a love for the beloved one, an admiration and reverence, an abuse and war sacrifice, a Jewish lament over a dead mother, a dream imagination, but also an angry fury ...
The repertoire includes, among others, compositions such as: Salut d’Amour, Theme from Schindler’s List, The Girl With The Flaxen Hair, Argentinian tangos by Astor Piazzolla, solo compositions by Tomas Mach and Japanese or English songs by Hiroko Matsumoto.
