JAN PÁLENIČEK and JITKA CECHOVA (article first published : 2007-10-21)

Friends of Music are to present a recital by internationally acclaimed Piano/Cello Duo, Jan Páleniček (violoncello) and Jitka Cechova (piano) on November 6.

Jan Páleniček ranks amongst the foremost Czech cellists of his generation. A graduate of the Prague Conservatory, he received a number of awards early in his career from prestigious competitions in his home country and abroad. He formed the ARS Trio linking up with a glorious family tradition established by his father, the pianist and composer Josef Páleniček, and founding member of the original Smetana Trio, which was active in the 1920’s. This has now been reconstructed and the new membership includes pianist Jitka Cechova and violinist Hana Kotková, and has resumed the original name of the “Smetana Trio”.

Jitka Cechova has won repeated laureateships from many Smetana Piano competitions, and is an outstanding soloist in her own right. She appears at major concert venues as guest artist for prominent symphony orchestras.

The Friends of Music programme includes Schumann’s Fantasiestűcke Op. 73; the Brahms Sonata in F major Op. 99; Beethoven’s Sonata in A major Op. 69, and Variation on a Slovak Folk Song by Martinu.

Prelude Performer for the evening will be young violinist, Yea Kyung Kim.

The recital takes place on November 6 at 19h45 at the Durban Jewish Centre, 44 Old Fort Road. Tickets R70 (R60 FOM members and R20 students/orchestral members) booked at Computicket. There is safe parking.
