The musicians performed songs from world famous composers like Rossini, Brouwer, de Falla, Gnattali, Rodriguez, Piazzolla, Sarasate.

A special request by Ambassador IĽAŠČÍK, 'A Day in November' composed by Leo Brouwer, a famous Cuban composer and guitarist, was beautifully rendered by Brűllová on her guitar.  

While being hosted in South Africa, Miriam Rodriguez Brüllová was introduced to a composition by South African guitarist and Professor at the University of Pretoria, Abriho Jordaana. Recognising its quality, she decided to play it on the evening.

The trio mesmerised the audience and received a standing ovation at the end of their performance.

The Visegrad Group (V4) is an informal grouping of four central European countries – the Slovak Republic, the Czech Republic, the Republic of Hungary and the Republic of Poland. It is a living and informal regional structure composed of four Member States of the EU and NATO that adhere to shared values and have a common history, culture and geographical situation.

The V4 is a dynamic regional grouping of EU Member States, representing a platform for strengthening the coordination and consultation mechanism with a view to reaching common positions and opinions on topical issues of foreign and European policy, regional development, and economic and cultural cooperation.

The concerts in South Africa were held as part of the European cultural festival which was organized by the delegation of the EU. Europfest included performances hosted by various EU member countries and took place at venues around the country from 22 April to 29 May 2015.
