„Variations on Andro Verdan song modify a Roma folk hit that is generally well-known thanks to the film Gypsies Are Found Near Heaven. The composition poses a challenge to cellist's ability of synchronisation with a pianist and ability to differentiate between different variations that come in a continuous flow. To a lesser extent, the composition presents a challenge to cellist's technical virtuosity. Commissioned by Czech Radio as a compulsory composition for cello cathegory of Concertino Praga competition.“

Hurník's compositions are characterized by synthesis of various styles, in which rock meets with baroque and modern polyphonic voice, chromatics with classical melodics and cantilena with minimalist patterns. His largest work yet is a symphony „Globus“ for percussion and symphonic orchestra. This piece was made for renowned Scottish percussionist Evelyn Glennie and is now a part of a repertoire of Dama-Dama ensemble from Brno. Sketch of author's work was published on his profile CD called „Fusion Music“.
