Adámek likes to combine the driving rhythms of minimal music with experimental means such as intermittent breathing or whispering into the instrument, he draws on folk music patterns and formulas. He avoids romantic pathos just as much as esoterically spun l`art-pour-l`art constructions. In this way, Adámek’s music remains comprehensible and targeted at every moment, especially since he always encircles a timeless humanistic core in his music. Süddeutsche Zeitung, Reinhard
The composer and conductor Ondřej Adámek speaks a musical language that embraces elements of distant cultures. Directness and finely formed moments of expression with artfully composed timbres characterize his works, which include orchestral, chamber, vocal, and electroacoustic music.
