Album Notes
For the Lyrical Strings Duo's second album, Lucie Zálešáková and Stephen Osserman visit the melodies and folklore of Central and Eastern Europe. Lucie’s childhood home in Prague was filled with the music of Leoš Janáček, her mother’s favorite composer. His piano collection On An Overgrown Path, in particular, was frequently heard on the phonograph. Taking this work as their starting point, the duo explores a fascinating repertory of pieces from Bohemia, Moravia, Poland and Ukraine either inspired by or drawn directly from folk songs and folk tales. It is the power of stories, new and ancient, familiar and exotic, that inspired the duo to arrange this music for violin and guitar and to create this album.


“Some of the greatest composers wrote the most beautiful miniatures. This album takes several of the most gorgeous small scale piano, vocal and chamber pieces by Janacek, Martinu, Wieniawski and Lysenko and arranges them for shimmering guitar and a violin aspiring to the power of speech. The result is both visionary and delightful. Those who know these pieces will be excited to hear them in their new musical garb, and those who do not, are in for the biggest treat.”
- Michael Beckerman, Professor of Music, New York University; Recipient of Janacek Medal from Czech Ministry of Culture; Laureate of the Czech Music Council
