"Our national folk songs has been sung and played in hundreds of different arrangements, whether accompanied by a single instrument or as an element of a symphonic composition. Despite that, I could not help myself and decided - encouraged by the Czech Radio Publishing House - to arrange, in my own way, twenty of them for piano. I made use of harmonic and rhythmic elements of jazz music, but at the same time tried to keep the technical demands of the compositions accessible. Above all, however, I did my best for the song to remain but a song; after all, I myself raise my hat to it..."

The set includes an instructive recording of the score on CD featuring, apart from the author, also Mr Miroslav Navrátil.
