Notes and Editorial Reviews

Jan Vicar belongs to the authors who combine a songwriting career and teaching at the musical colleges specializing in musical aesthetics and theory. His profile album named after the composition ''Way to the Sun'' contains a very interesting cross-section of his work from the eighties to the present day. We will meet with compositions influenced by ''Polish schools'', synthesizing songs and very popular and humorous adaptations of Czech and Moravian folk songs. Recording of the project took place in Olomouc, a city where Jan Vicar grew up and where today the University operates.
