„Although Concertino per salterio ed archi is my first piece written for dulcimer, I have been intrigued by the instrument – so ingeniously used by Igor Stravinskij and other, mainly Hungarian, contemporary composers – for quite some time. What I find particularly inspiring is the rhythmical and timbre potential of the instrument. Hearing of the composition competition announced in 2004 by the Dulcimer Players’ Civil Association in the Czech Republic in Valašské Meziříčí, I took part in the contest, and received an award.“

Jiří Teml was initially an economist. From 1964 to 1974 he took composition lessons from Jiří Jaroch. From 1979 to 1980 he worked at Czech Radio in Plzeň and from 1980 he worked as a musical dramaturge at Czech Radio in Prague. After a period of rather traditional composition by the end of the 70’s he shifted his focus to New music (Three bagatelles for violin, oboe, clarinet and piano – 1977). He transforms the components of folk music to artificial music (Three promenades for orchestra – 1983, Second symphony „The War with Newts“ – 1987). Teml consciously tries to give his music a Czech accent, both encoded in the melody and rhythm of his language and in his choice of instrumental combinations.
