This audio-book comprises children’s tales (in Czech) by Filip Rychlebský, narrated by eminent Czech actor Ivan Trojan, and songs by composer and jazz pianist Beata Hlavenková. The Pishliks are wooden figurines that belong to Jáchym, an ordinary boy who got them for his birthday. The Pishliks lead incredibly adventurous lives, mostly when they are left home alone. The two scores of songs by Beata Hlavenková are interpreted, apart from the composer herself, by some of the foremost Czech vocalists and musicians: Lenka Dusilová, Milan Cais, and Petr Ostrouchov. The double CD is ideal for children under ten and their parents. The project was premiered in concert at the Divadlo Minor theatre as part of the Struny dětem festival.
