“I had been toying with the idea of writing a piano concerto for several years. I thought it might even include jazz motifs, even though I can’t really tell what it actually means. One of my friends, the graphic designer Jiří Anderle, kept provoking me with all kinds of recordings until, under the impression of many prolonged debates on painting and music, I finally set down to work in the spring of 2010.

While working on the third movement – sometime in the autumn of 2010 – I unintentionally recalled the term the funhouse of life that Jiří would speak about so often. At that time I played the piano in the theatre show at the Viola theatre featuring Mr Luděk Munzar after his comeback. In the show, which was called I’ll Dress You Up in Stars (Obleču Tě do hvězd) and which commemorated the 100th anniversary of the poet František Hrubín’s birth, Mr Munzar reminisces about his fellow actors at the National Theatre. Some of his words will always remain on the spot, suspended, as it were, above the stage: …Don’t worry, old Kukrálec simply got drunk and turned on the giddy-go-round. Just like that, just for himself…, which are the final lines of Hrubín’s play The Crystal Night (Křišťálová noc). And so it happened that the motif of a giddy-go-round found its way into the third movement of my concerto.”
