Variace Chamber Ensemble, artistic director Jan Jouza

Schönberg, Webern, Schulhoff

The Variace Chamber Ensemble has performed pieces for string quartet and less common instrumentations alike. Founded in 1997, it has given numerous concerts in the Czech Republic and abroad (Switzerland, Germany and Poland). The ensemble has repeatedly appeared within the Czech Philharmonic chamber music cycle and at events organised by the Czech Chamber Music Society. Since 2010, it has regularly performed within the “Tones of Architecture” series of concerts held at palaces and halls in Prague with the participation of leading Czech actors (Josef Somr, Otakar Brousek Jr., Simona Postlerová, and others). One of the most notable projects within the cycle, which also include presentations of the venues’ history, was the concert titled “Double Bass”, featuring Franz Schubert’s Piano Quintet in A major, the “Trout”, combined with extracts from Patrick Süskind’s play The Double Bass. The Variace Chamber Ensemble’s debut album, titled Literature in Music (Caplet, Respighi and Schönberg’s Transfigured Night; released by Waldmannn) was voted Record of the Month (May 1999) by the critics of the French magazine Répertoire (R10). Its second CD (Martinů, Martin, Haas, Schulhoff, Ullmann) was released by Agentura V+M in 2004.

Traffic restriction


..

Dear vistors,
We would like to inform you about the traffic restriction on the road I/39 leading from České Budějovice to Český Krumlov (valid till 29. 6. 2017).
There is a road work by the exit from České Budějovice in locality Litvínovice and Planá and then between locality Kamenný Újezd, Kosov to Dolní Třebonín and it is necessary to take a detour.

We suggest 2 routs:
Route Nr. 1
From České Budějovice through Včelná – exit by Boršov nad Vltavou to Český Krumlov – direction Kaplice /Dolní Dvořiště – marked detour by Holkov – to Horní Třebonín – back to main road going to Český Krumlov

Route Nr. 2
From České Budějovice through Včelná – exit by Boršov nad Vltavou to Český Krumlov – direction Kaplice /Dolní Dvořiště – by Velešín then turn to Markvartice – Český Krumlov

There is a lot of traffic on both routes and it is necessary to count with at least 30 minutes time reserve.
