Voices in Bratislava is a musical memento of your visit to the capital of Slovakia, Bratislava. Each selection is linked to a historic site in Old Town Bratislava -- These are the spots you've visited on your tour of the town. Now you can listen to the music that has been played there through the centuries, and each piece is introduced with a story-line, linking it to the location. Piano music, choral music, folklore, vocal solos and small ensembles, music of the Renaissance -- right down to operetta selections from a favorite Slovak composer. Mozart, Beethoven, Bartok, Liszt, Brahms, Haydn, Anton Rubinstein, Johann Hummel, Mikulaš Schneider-Trnavský, Eugen Suchoň, and Gejza Dusik are among the modern composers showcased here, not to mention Renaissance greats Dufay, Isaac, and Pietro Bono. Artists include the Bratislava City Chorus and its soloists, and two piano professors from Bratislava´s University for the Performing Arts.
