The Music Archaeology Series in Mikulčice
By organising the composed evenings in Mikulčice, we attempt to revive the public’s interest in old and new music. The performers interpret music authentically and occasionally combine it with other artistic genres. At the same time, we present the results of current archaeological research in Mikulčice or in general. We connect the world of art with the world of science.
A number of both Czech and foreign artists have performed in the Music Archaeology series so far, for example, Iva Bittová, Spiritual Quintet, Arte dei Suonatori (PL), Unicorn Ensemble (AT), Beatriz Lafont Murcia (ES), Cristián Gutiérrez (CHL), Marc Hervieux (FR) ), Laila Cathleen Neuman (NL), OctOpus Vocalis, Trio FUT, Plaisirs de Musique, Marian Friedl, Petr Wagner, Martin Hroch, and Jan Čižmář.
Music Archaeology events take place at the Archaeological Base in Mikulčice-Trapíkov, a separate workplace of Institute of Archaeology of the Czech Academy of Sciences in Brno. The grand opening of the new base in May 2014 was a great opportunity to launch the series. The clear architecture of the building, which is located near the famous Great Moravian site – Mikulčice-Valy Stronghold – give the place an amount of authenticity and dignity.
