Jac van Steen is an exceptional conductor. He is particularly attracted by the world of opera, to which he devotes himself fully. And so, it happened that one morning, about eight years ago, he came up with the idea of inviting Marie Fajtová to work with him. An Advent performance of Haydn’s The Creation seemed an ideal opportunity. Who else can be the archangel and Eva at the same time? Engaging Aleš Briscein and Roman Janál also came naturally. Not only because of their intimate knowledge of this pearl of oratorio, but also because for Jac they are ‘old friends’ from musical wanderings in Prague. The children’s voices of the Pueri gaudentes and Radost choirs will remind us how meaningful it is to support UNICEF with these concerts.
