The fall of communism in what is now the Czech Republic has done wonders for their musicians. These people are now able and encouraged to create music. Singer/violinist Jiri Pavlica directs the music ensemble Hradistan in this very Czech folk yet symphonic sounding 50 minutes of music. It is not pure classical music that Pavlica has written, but is certainly strongly influenced by it. The lyrics are very poetic and the music grand. It makes for an interesting combination and listen.
