AnotationThe festival focuses on instructive piano literature and is a unique platform for linking the teaching intentions of the Department of Keyboard Instruments with the practice performed by current students, graduates of the OU and teachers of the Music School of the Moravian-Silesian Region. In the background of familiarization with Czech piano literature for children, a series of lectures, seminars, an interpretation course and a concert shot by Czech Radio will take place within two days. Students and pedagogues of the KKN have a significant share in the whole project, while at the same time we welcome experts in the field - the interpretation seminar will be led by pianist, conductor and teacher MgA. Lukáš Klánský, lecture on piano compositions by Czech composers of the Classicist period will be given by MgA. Lenka Hejnova, PhD. At the turn of January and February 2020, KKN FU OU organizes the 5th Festival of Instructive Piano Literature. The first year was dedicated to the compositions and personality of L. Sluka, and took place in February 2016 with great response. In 2017, we focused on the work and personality of K. Slavický. The third year was dedicated to P. Eben and I. Hurník. Last year we dealt with piano instructive works by Vítězslava Kaprálová and Bohuslav Martinů. After a series of 20th-century authors, we now want to turn our attention to a group of composers called 'Czech classics'. The focus of the event is a course for children from the Elementary Art Schools of the Moravian-Silesian Region, their teachers and students of the Faculty of Arts led by Lukáš Klánský. The festival will end with a joint concert of children, students and teachers of our department, which will be recorded by Czech Radio Ostrava. The whole event will subsequently be created a teaching program, generally included under the teaching of the subject History and Literature of the Piano. During the preparation of this program we cooperate very closely with art disciplines.
