Vladimír Hirsch - Markéta, the daughter of Lazar (2010)

Conceptual album, 2009-2010. Adaptation of the soundtrack to the stage play “Markéta, dcera Lazarova”, a romantic drama, based on Vladislav Vančura's epic novel. The music – contemporary classical in its base, with an industrial and dark ambient tint - flows from sacred choral motifs and sorrowful violins surrounded by calm ambience through moments of pain and inner tension to dramatic eruptions of passion, violence and victorious hunts of percussion, clanging metal, flightly and nervous pianos, disturbing string inputs and ostinato, ominous rhythms with rich structuralized sound. Intense, religious and carefully constructed leaving no loose ends.
