Characterizing silence with sounds is like depicting water with fire, dancing the immobility of stones. Now, however, trumpet player and composer Kornél Fekete-Kovács is undertaking this in a new production with the Czech Robert Balzar Trio and singer Veronika Harcsa, entitled Different Aspects of Silence. Kornél Fekete-Kovács met the Robert Balzar Trio two years ago, with whom his collaboration became regular. The common musical thinking has become complete with the popular Czech singer Dan Bárta with whom a full-hour show was recently recorded at the Czech Television studio in Brno. Most of the songs was composed by Kornél Fekete-Kovács, who feels the responsibility for this: as he says, behind each sound played there are all the sounds that were found in the silence, but they were deprived of the opportunity to sound. So the music determines, yet liberates, and this is also manifested in the musical concept: the composed themes alternate with collective, directed improvisations. The lyrics of the, elegant, intimate compositions were selected by Kornél from authors such as William Blake or the Sufi philosopher and poet Rúmi, and this time will be performed by Veronika Harcsa, who is also famous for her richness of tone. He also sang songs with similar themes on Kornél’s previous album, entitled Foundations. During the days of the concert, there will also be a recording session, on which a 21st century student alienated from the experience of silence can get an even more nuanced musical picture of various aspects of silence.
