FOR MANY MUSICIANS it is more difficult to play with another colleague than alone, as a soloist. A soloist is more free in a performance, because he or she does not have to take into account conflicting interpretive ideas of a partner and possibly be hampered by his or her inability to comply technically or expressively with the demands of the composition at hand. The fact that organists give concerts almost exclusively as soloists is inherent in the nature of their instrument.
SVATÁ HORA is a place of pilgrimage situated at the top of a hill above the town of Příbram, about 60 km southwest far from Prague. The origins of this place are shrouded in legends. The first chapel might have been built there in the second half of the 13th century. The Miraculous Statuette of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Svatá Hora, a gothic folk wood carving form the 14th century, finally reached Svatá Hora after distressful pilgrimages through the churches of Příbram.
