About

Jan Vičar belongs to that group of artists who combine a songwriting career with teaching at music colleges where he specialises in musical aesthetics and theory. This release, named after the composition Way to the Sun, contains a very interesting cross-section of his work from the 1980s to the present day. The listener encounters compositions influenced by 'Polish schools', and very popular and humorous adaptations of Czech and Moravian folk songs. The recording of this project took place in Olomouc, a city where Jan Vičar grew up and where the University operates today.
