„Angelic Landscapes based on texts by Michail Lermontov, Christian Friedrich Henrici, Charles Baudelaire, on folk poetry and ancient prayers written in 2009 represents a subjective reaction to the process of gradual deconstruction of the value hierarchy that takes place within the co-called cultural world of the present day. Oppressed and exploited by the process, the modern human being craves to find – and will always do so – a refuge. Unconscious though this search may be at first, the quest for a landscape of repose will ultimately become more and more urgent. The “Angelic Landscapes” represent a vision of such an oasis.

Following is the motto of the composition, taken from Lermontov’s poetry: “The angel was flying through the sky of midnight and he sang a song quietly; And the moon and the stars, and the crowd of clouds hearkened to that holy song.” – We should listen along with them.“ 

Other compositions by Ivan Kurz published in Czech Radio:
