Audio Samples

MY COUNTRY, a cycle of symphonic poems after Bedřich Smetana
The Brno Contemporary Orchestra, led by conductor Pavel Šnajdr, and featuring violinist Milan Paľa, navigates the works of five contemporary Czech composers while isolated in different rooms of the Orlí Street Theater in Brno.
“I’m so very satisfied with this whole experience. … BCO were seriously devoted to the music – and on several occasions brought out more than I knew was there – thankfully going for takes beyond my point of satisfaction.. The sound … was exactly what I hoped for this recording.”
- Keith Lay, composer
