Experience the blend of minimalist elements and Moravian folklore: Czech composer Tatiana Mikova Carnegie Hall on July 1st

NEW YORK, 24-Jun-2024 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Czech classical and film music composer, Tatiana Mikova, introduces her String Quartet, “In Modo Lidico,” at Carnegie Hall’s Progressive Musicians Laureate Gala. The work will be performed by the Lehner String Quartet on 1st July 2024, in the famous Weill Recital Hall, well known for hosting hundreds of recitals, chamber music concerts, and other events.

String Quartet “In Modo Lidico” is an instrumental piece that blends minimalist elements with distinct themes influenced by Moravian folklore. Following its world premiere in New York in 2021, the composition will be performed alongside works by other composers.

The title of the piece, “In Modo Lidico,” reflects its frequent use of the Lydian mode, commonly found in Moravia – Mikova’s homeland. Her ability to create cultural and stylistic fusions results in a classical music concert work with seamlessly incorporated folk music influences. This piece was composed in 2012 and 2016, with the first two movements crafted in Czechia and the final movement written in England, where Mikova currently resides.

“I am thrilled to present this composition to a live audience in the iconic Carnegie Hall. Music is a universal language, and I hope my work will resonate with listeners, offering them a memorable experience,” Mikova says.

Mikova expressed gratitude to the Lehner String Quartet for premiering the piece during the pandemic, adding that the otherwise positive message of her work contrasted with this complex period.

Classical music enthusiasts can expect the release of the studio recording and sheet music in the autumn of 2024.
