The concert from the cycle Pictures and Music will begin with a short lecture (in Czech) by the National Gallery curator focusing on a projected painting from the collection of the National Gallery in Prague.
 
Almost everybody has a guitar at home. Many of us know how to play three chords, enough to manage campfire songs. That’s like having a bicycle and just going around the village. But what a difference if somebody else with the same bicycle goes around the whole world! The guitarist, composer, photographer and also the creator of the five-finger playing technique, Štěpán Rak, really went almost all over the world with his concert instrument. Apart from the fact that the programme is like a shop window at a well-known patisserie with the best cakes, there will also be two pieces of ‘sweet wood’: the guitars of Štěpán and Jan-Matěj Rak, the true musical confectioners.
