Remembering Warchal every year

MEMBERS of the Slovak Chamber Orchestra, established by violinist Bohdan Warchal in 1960, recently came up with the idea of commemorating their founder, who died three years ago, in the annual concert series Hommage á Bohdan Warchal.
The first such concert will take place this coming Thursday, January 29, at 19:00 at the Concert Hall of the Slovak Philharmonic. The orchestra will perform works by Arcangelo Corelli, Franz Schubert, Johann Sebastian Bach, and Leoš Janáček, who were among the artist's favourite composers.

Warchal led his orchestra - often nicknamed Warchalovci - for 40 years. At the turn of the new millennium, he passed his work into the hands of his student, Ewald Danel, who has continued in Warchal's footsteps since 2001.
