The genre of Quanti Minoris can be classified as a folk rock with Celtic roots. For most concise indication it's designation can be considered as "Hradrock", meaning "Castle Rock". The repertoire Q.M. forms, beyond one's own production, is mostly a musical arrangement of medieval poetry (anonymous, but also known authors as F. Villon). Music is my own project. Being enchanted by rhytm and style of music of the 13th – 17th century, I decided to promote the authentic atmosphere of that time by using the compositions (or their parts) of the masters of that period, both anonymous and known, such as John Dowland, M. Praetorius, J.S. Bach etc. Refreshing, joyfull melodic line carries medieval element provided by replicas of historical instruments transformed over the rock base.
The result is exiting, uplifting and entertaining, yet somewhat difficult to classify the style of musical direction. It is more interesting for its colorful authentic sounds (gems-horn, reed-pipe, crooked horn, recorders, hurdy gurdy, chalumeau, flute, lute, kvintern, viola da gamba-alt.), and also by the rhythm section (other than the traditional 4/4, 3/4 or 6/8, as well as lesser used 10/8, sometimes 7/8, 5/8, 7/4, 9/4 and other ... funny ...). The music fits equally well into the surroundings of castles and palaces as well as on the stage of folk, rock, ethnic and world music festivals or small clubs in the area.
