It isn’t very likely to find someone who has never heard of Martin Kumzak’s Moondance Orchestra. They may have missed its name when the presenter Marek Eben introduced it at some of the Stardance evenings, for the first series of which the orchestra was established by its leader in 2006. Martin Kumzak explained it as follows: “I addressed my long-time fellow musicians and friends from studio collaborations on various projects … then from productions of the musicals Jesus Christ Superstar, Hair, Hamlet and Rusalka, and members of the Pajky Pajk band which accompanied most of the Superstar competitions on Czech TV Nova.” And even though the name of this band isn’t explicitly given in this year’s programme of the festival concert, the musicians known from the Stardance production and others collaborating with the Pajky Pajk band and accompanying Dasha in other events, and especially the Karlovy Vary Symphony Orchestra, will make this another attractive and, judging by the past, always successful symphonic project, some of which the audiences may have already seen with Dasha at Prague’s Christmas festival (to name but one, the unique music and visual programme entitled “Symphonic Queen” in 2013). The programme, comprising Czech and world hits, will undoubtedly be a unique experience. The professional approach of Dasha, all the musicians and Kumzak’s excellent arrangements are a guarantee of that.
