If memory is inspiring each work of art, the case of Leos Janacek is particularly notable. He was influenced by the Moravian folk melodies and by the rhythm and inflections of Czech speech when writing for voices. He also used historical, autobiographical facts or famous novels by Gogol, Tolstoy or Dostoyevsky. In his work, many indications manifest the importance of memory, and more generally of his cultural impregnation of Moravia at the end of the 19th century. Praised for "the undeniable quality of his piano" (Diapason Magazine) and "his elegant touch, accuracy and transparency" (L'Education Musicale, Paris), Israeli pianist Nadav Hertzka has performed throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia in major venues such as Carnegie Weill Hall, Wigmore Hall, Kings Place, Shanghai Conservatory, and Avery Fisher Hall.
