This is an extraordinary four-movement work. Czech and English text is provided. The movements are short and contrasted, but could easily stand alone. The 1st and 4th movements are the same, lively with innovative piano accompaniment. The 2nd movement, “Flute,” is absolutely magical, accompanied only by recorder.
