Music-pictorial Homage to Nature
In September 2019 the director, screenplay writer, traveller, and internationally most successful Slovak documentary-maker Pavol Barabáš will celebrate a “round-year jubilee”. On this occasion the organisers of the Viva Musica! festival in cooperation with Michal Novinski have decided to prepare a special concert, which via music and video materials from his films will bring visitors on a journey round the world: from the bowels of our Earth to the highest snow-covered peaks, from the green jungles to the frozen, inhospitable poles, from unknown lands to the High Tatras, from extreme adventure to the meditation and philosophy of other cultures. Barabáš lives in stories that are played out far from civilisation, beyond the frontier of the known. For some decades he has been recording his view of our planet in his documentaries, for which he has received many awards throughout the world. At the concert music by Michal Novinski, Martin “Maok” Tesák, Oskar Rózsa and Martin Maroš Barabáš will be performed by the Viva Musica! Symphony Orchestra and Choir conducted by Michaela Rózsa Ružičková. Since Pavol Barabáš’s films are especially about how human beings should behave towards this planet, the closing concert of the 15th annual Viva Musica! festival will at the same time be a great musico-pictorial homage to Nature. August 22, 2019 at Bratislava’s Old Market Hall.
