The Best of Gershwin

The Best of Gershwin

Not every artist reaches the vault of heaven of art. Talking about music, it happens quite often that we straggle to explain what we have listened to. A language, which we can not translate simultaneously and it is hard to express with words, because we comprehend it only through the emotion. The Czech music ensemble “Czech Collegium” is a proof for this experience, but succeeds in emotional transforming the elusive elements of the music of the great American composer George Gershwin. By means of the definition “the best of “ Gershwin the audience is allowed to follow the thin red thread in the course of the evolution in the artist’s music and reaches the heaven of the great and unforgettable music.
