There was a boy. He lived some 347 years ago in the very beautiful city of Salzburg. It was a charming boy with a graceful name Martinek. He had wonderful blond curls, his eyes were like cornflowers in the meadow, his face smooth and shiny like milk with rose petals. He was cute but naughty…  

The story of Martinek from Salzburg is inspired by the music of Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber. In the Baroque period, it was a common practice to imitate and creatively translate the sounds of nature into the musical language, which was defined by the expression imitazione della natura. Biber's works that  feature in the concert are a great example of this practice. They will become a musical illustration of the fairy tale. If you want to find out what the future holds for Martinek, we invite you to a concert at the National Forum of Music. A colourful story about Martinek will be presented by The Violin Consort conducted by Zbigniew Pilch, who will talk about the adventures of a small rascal from Salzburg 347 years ago.
