„Prague Kaleidoscope is written and dedicated to Duo Teres: Lucia Kopsova (V-n) and Thomas Honek (Guit). The idea of the work was to combine a traditional Partita form with a „czech“ melodical music material. Also I intended to create a concert music for 2 soloists and all possible combinations and contrasts between them.

I´d like to admit that before the creative I have listened to the recordings of Duo Teres, after I knew the possibilities od these very professional musicians. So finally I wrote Prague Kaleidoscope in which all items (called above) were succesfully connected plus the Prague itself which inspired me. In other words it´s not only the attempt to show the beautiful landscapes but its´ more – a reproduction of the inner spirit of Prague. 

The first „premiere“ performance took place 13-rd of December 2011 at Liben Castle, Prague. This performance has given a long life of the series Concertos of Kaleidoscope. Besides I would like to add that wonderful performances by Duo Teres made me write a new version of Kaleidoscope – Duo with String Orchestra.“ J. Freidlin
