FILMS


Music Documentary Film MAKANNA

  Music documentary film MAKANNA, based on the novel of the Jewish writer Jiří Weil (1900 - 1959), from the concert performance of the ballet MAKANNA, composed by composer Irena Kosíková for voice (Jan Židlický), solo cello (František Brikcius) and orchestra (Jan Talich - conductor, Talich Chamber Orchestra), was held at the Convent of St Agnes of Bohemia under the auspices of Sir Tom Stoppard and Václav Havel.

  The novel Makanna - The Father of Miracles describes the rise and fall of a historical person - the 7th century false prophet with his face covered with the green veil and his eyes glowing as embers . ........ "Unearthed from ancient times, this unfamiliar oriental world becomes in this novel a living, colourful picture reminding us of not-so-distant historical tyranny"

  The film premier took place at the Vaclav Havel Library in Prague to commemorate the 115th anniversary of birth of the Jewish writer Jiří Weil and Daniel Pearl World Music Days. It was already screened in Beijing (the 9the European Union Film Festival in China), in Lisbon (MUVI - International Music Film Festival in Portugal), in Mexico (FIC AUTOR - Author's International Film Festival) and in London (WALTHAM FOREST CELLO FEST 2019 - "London Borough of Culture meets Classical Music").

  There are English (Czech, Spanish, Portuguese and Chinese) subtitles available (you can turn them on by clicking the subtitles/captions icon at the bottom of the video).

Music Documentary Film eSACHERe (Trailer)

 Music documentary film eSACHERe features Czech cellist František Brikcius, who is presenting music by top 12 contemporary composers (C. Beck, L. Berio, P. Boulez, B. Britten, H. Dutilleux, W. Fortner, A. Ginastera, C. Halffter, H. W. Henze, H. Holliger, K. Huber and W. Lutoslawski) and explaining, why they are all using the Sacher hexachord (Es, A, C, H, E, Re - musical cryptogram on the name of Swiss conductor Paul Sacher).

  In the occasion of the 70th birthday of Swiss conductor and maecenas Paul Sacher, Russian cellist Mstislav Rostropovich asked 12 composers (Conrad Beck, Luciano Berio, Pierre Boulez, Benjamin Britten, Henri Dutilleux, Wolfgang Fortner, Alberto Ginastera, Cristobal Halffter, Hans Werner Henze, Heinz Holliger, Klaus Huber and Witold Lutoslawski) to create dozen compositions for cello using theme from the name of Paul Sacher (Es, A, C, H, E, Re). They were partially premiered in Zurich 2nd May 1976.

  Decades later, Czech Cellist František Brikcius introduced this wonderful set of dozen compositions (we were told that it was for the first time performed by one cellist) at the Convent of St Agnes of Bohemia in Prague. Concert was held under the auspices of the Embassy of Switzerland in the cooperation with the National Gallery in Prague, as part of Daniel Pearl World Music Days and it was supported by scholarship of the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic, the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia and the Britten-Pears Foundation.

  New music documentary film eSACHERe (2022) explains the genesis of this unique music project. Visit https://filmfreeway.com/project/eSACHERe and https://www.Brikcius.com/Festival .

DUO BRIKCIUS

[2 Cellists - 2 Siblings]

  Duo Brikcius is a Czech chamber music ensemble created by two promising young cellists (brother and sister), Anna Brikciusová and František Brikcius. Both founding members are well acquainted with the solo cello repertoire, but decided to increase their repertoire with music written for this unusual combination (with great hidden potential) of two cellos. The main aims of Duo Brikcius are to study and perform works written for two cellos, enable the creation and performance of works that are not well known to the audience, encourage contemporary composers regardless of nationality or age), to create music for this ensemble, maintain the tradition of established composers, present Czech music culture abroad and bring to other people the joy of music.

  Duo Brikcius has appeared in many festivals (for example Chotěbořské jaro, Boskovice, Baščaršijske noći, Duo Brikcius - 2 Cellos Tour, Dvořák festival, European days of Jewish culture, Století andělů a ďáblů v Pošumaví, Daniel Pearl Music Festival, Festival Culturel International de Musique Symphonique, Festival Smetanovské dny, Festival Brikcius, Festival Baroko v krvi and Bach Festival Gers) both in the Czech republic and abroad (Algeria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, France, Germany, Poland, Sweden, Turkey and the United Kingdom). More details are available on the website https://www.Brikcius.com .

"Života děj vane, či vleče mě sem i tam, leč jiskra vzpomínky zůstává mi ku svitu navzdory temnotě - - mnoho zdaru vám, Brikciusové!"
Vít Kremlička

  DUO BRIKCIUS formant par deux violoncellistes tchèques Anna Brikciusová et František Brikcius, sœur et frère, se concentre de performances des œuvres déjà écrites pour deux violoncelles, de présentation de la musique thèque, mais aussi inspire des créations neuves - des œuvres des compositeurs contemporaines.

  DUO BRIKCIUS a participé à plusieurs festivals en Allemagne, Algérie, Bosnie-Herzégovine, France, Pologne, République Tchèque, Royaume-Uni, Suède et Turquie.

  Comme a écrit un poète tchèque, le plus connu dans son pays - Vít Kremlička : " La vie passe, de profondes à hauteurs, mais toujours me reste une étincelle de la mémoire pour éclaircir des ténèbres - beaucoup de courage à vous DUO BRIKCIUS ! ".

  Informations sur le site https://www.Brikcius.com .

  České violoncellové duo "Duo Brikcius", sourozenců Anny Brikciusové a Františka Brikcia, se věnuje studiu a koncertnímu provedení děl napsaných pro dvě violoncella, rozšíření znalosti současného publika o díla méně známá, zachování tradice již známých děl, inspiraci současných skladatelů (bez ohledu na národnost či věk) k tvorbě hudby pro Duo Brikcius, prezentaci české hudby v zahraničí, propagaci tvorby židovských - terezínských skladatelů a přinášení radosti z hudby.

  Duo Brikcius vystoupilo na mnoha festivalech (např. Chotěbořské jaro, Boskovice, Baščaršijske noći, Duo Brikcius - 2 Cellos Tour, Dvořákův festival, Evropské dny židovské kultury, Století andělů a ďáblů v Pošumaví, Daniel Pearl Music Festival, Festival Culturel International de Musique Symphonique, Festival Brikcius, Festival Smetanovské dny, Festival Baroko v krvi, Bach Festival Gers, Waltham Forest Cello Fest) jak v České republice, tak i v zahraničí (Alžírsko, Bosna a Hercegovina, Francie, Německo, Polsko, Švédsko, Turecko a Velká Británie).
