Jim Reilly performs An Afternoon of Czech Music
Jim Reilly, Tenor; Piano; Beatrice Giere, Piano

Jim Reilly, Mindekirken’s former Music Director, returns with  an usual program of music by Czech composers from three different periods, beginning with two Biblical Psalms and a song by the Romantic composer  Antonín Dvořak, sung in Czech. Then Jim will play Book One of the great piano cycle "On a Overgrown Path" by the early Twentieth Century composer Leoš Janaček, a work which Jim performed several times during his years with us. Finally, Jim and his accompanist Beatrice Giere will join in five songs in Czech by the little-known  Vítěslava Kaprálová (1915-1940), who despite her early death  left behind a small but significant body a music that showed immense promise.

Jim will offer a few written and spoken comments about the composers and their music.Everyone is welcome, and of course Jim would especially like to greet his old choir members and friends!
