Acclaimed jazz pianist and band leader Milan Svoboda is all set to perform at Congo Square JazzFest 2013, in association with t2, with his band featuring Milan Krajic (saxophone), Filip Splaney (bass) and Ivan Audes (drums). Here’s what he told t2 before the concert.


Having a quartet, what are the main artistic challenges?


The biggest challenge is to narrate our stories and fantasies with the communicative co-players through improvisation, which is played at the moment... right here, right now.


Open-air to clubs... how do you see the connection between sound and space?


In my opinion, the best place for playing modern jazz is a full jazz club. I like the close contact with the audience. But playing on a big stage for a large audience is also very impressive.


What inspired you to start playing the piano?


My inspiration was my musically-educated family and also the Czech musical tradition. In the domain of jazz piano, my inspiration comes from the possibility of a free expression and the related fantasy.


Tell us about your relationship with your audience… do you feel you play to entertain, inspire or challenge them?


I prefer comprehensible but original music with the attribute of communication, where there’s a large space, enabling to share personal expressions and emotions.


What do you do when you get a writer’s block?


Oh, that is a well-known feeling! Sometimes it helps to have a deadline. At the moment there is no time for writer’s block.


Your take on the music of India in general, besides jazz?


India, to me, represents a spiritual place. As I’m getting older, I’m more aware of the spiritual scale of human existence. And traditional Indian music plays a very remarkable role in the spirituality.


Milan Svoboda will perform at DI on November 29 from 8.30pm
